Spanish-American Theatre provides students with the tools necessary to think and write critically about plays. We will read ten to twelve Spanish-American plays representative of major theatrical movements, and we will set them within their socio-historical and literary context. To provide a better understanding of the plays and the movements to which they belong, I will lecture on the Theater of the Absurd, Theater of Cruelty, Epic Theater, Metatheater and Performance. Students will have the opportunity to perform short excerpts from the plays.
  Course Description
Students read and analyze ten plays while examining the following literary movements: realism, vanguardism, the Theatre of the Absurd, metatheatre, and postmodernism. Students use their Spanish speaking skills, as class participation is strongly encouraged.
