each semester

Work with American literature; a presentation of the results will conclude the course.

The theater offers various ways of communicating texts and contents. In this class we will explore various ways of dramatizing texts on stage. One focus will be the analysis of expatriate literature. We can also use music, dance, and painting of the period.
We will use exercises and improvisations to develop scenes that will be presented on stage at the end of the semester.
The goal will be to give students the opportunity to explore different ways of theatrical processes in a free and open environment.
