Description and Goals
In Spanish America, community theater has been one of the main generators of political and social change. By questioning fiction, communities question all social scaffolding. As a result, spectators can identify possible solutions to conflicts that affect them daily. In this class we will work with Psychodrama by J.L. Moreno and the Theater of the Oppressed by Augusto Boal. We will also work with the concepts “meta-theater”, “photo performance” and micro-theater. Students will have the experience of Spanish language connotations in role-playing of social conflicts, and; also improve their speech and elocution in Spanish. This course incorporates acting, writing, political sciences, and community engagement.
