Primary Instructor:

In this class, students will be introduced to the field of grassroots, or community-based theater, through co-creating a performance about Detroit’s Civil Rights Movement with seniors (from Detroit’s Hannan House) and teens (from the Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit). This performance will inform the creation of Mosaic’s main stage show to premiere in spring of 2007. Students will be transported weekly to Hannan House for two hour theater-making sessions; weekly readings and assignments will be discussed during each commute. This course is designed to give students the knowledge and skills necessary to incorporate applied theater techniques into their own work. As such, readings will entail theater-making guides, including selections from Augusto Boal’s Theater of the Oppressed; basic performance theory helping us to understand what this work “does” in performance; and a range of community-based dramatic literature. This class welcomes students at any stage in their education pursuing any discipline. It is highly suggested for those who are interested in creating meaningful work while making profound interpersonal connections in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere. Because this course demands a small enrollment, course meeting times will be determined according to its students’ schedules. This class is offered for 3 credits. If you are interested, please contact the course instructor, Rebecca I. Fried at becaif@umich.edu.
