THTR 342 - Creating Meaning


FDR: HA Fine Arts Distribution
Experiential Learning (EXP): Yes
Credits: 3

Prerequisite: instructor consent. Shakespeare is OLD and DEAD.  Why do students still study his plays and theatre companies still perform them?  Does he have anything left to say to us?  Is his work relevant to the world we live in now?  This is an acting class for the lovers and the haters, the readers and the performers.  First we will explore ways to perform Shakespeare’s texts for a modern world while exploding preconceived notions about them.  Then we will use contemporary devising techniques to create and perform our own new work using Shakespeare as a jumping off point.
