Description:

What is feminism today, and how is it relevant for theatre and performance work? This class will serve as an introduction to the work of 20th and 21st century women playwrights, performance artists, and critical thinkers. We will confront feminism as a tool for reading and interpreting issues of gender and sexuality in plays and performances. We will also consider how, and to what extent, feminism influences practices of writing, performing, and spectatorship. Students will be expected to attend performances, read and write critically and perform their discoveries. This course is intended for upper-level Division II students; a general background in theatre/performance and/or feminism(s) will be assumed.
