This is a practicum course, where the basic tenets and evolving politic and philosophies of Latinx theater are examined through recorded and written performance texts, and direct actorly engagement with theatrical forms, including: social protest and agitprop, myth and ritual, scripting through improvisation, in-depth character and solo work, collective conceptualization and more. The course emphasizes Latinx performance works produced from the margins of the mainstream theater, which serve as a kind of dramatized political forum for Latinx artists, reflective of some of the most transgressive explorations of queer and national/ethnic identities in the U.S today. The course culminates in a public performance of students’ work.
