Choose one from the following two options.

  • Introduction to Performance Studies: PERF ST 200
    The course offers students an introduction to the field of performance studies, attending to fundamental histories, theories, and practices of/in performance.
  • Performance, Culture, and Communication: PERF ST 203
    Through improvisation, symbolic movement, embodied imagery, rhetorical vignettes, and newspaper theatre students will enact oral histories, cultural myths, and contemporary news stories relating to human rights and social justice. (Note that for students interested in pursuing a practice based capstone, 203 is highly recommended).
