Primary Instructor:

In this intensive upper level drama course, students participate in the full process of research, script analysis and rehearsal on a major work of dramatic literature, This year focuses on Bertolt Brecht's “Galileo”, which examines the conflict between science and religious doctrine. This production is presented in collaboration with the LSA Theme Semester, “The Universe- Yours to Discover”, in recognition of the 400th anniversary of Galileo's discoveries. Students will have the special opportunity to interact with guest speakers, visit the Detroit Planetarium and the Rare Books Library as part of their interdisciplinary educational process. The seminar offers students the chance to do dramaturgical work on the period and place of the play, to collaboratively develop a conceptual frame for the work and evolve a production design to express it. Importantly, all the actors have the time to do thorough and detailed character and scene analysis. Students with an interest in acting, directing, design, as well as vocal and instrumental music, playwriting and dramaturgy are all encouraged to apply. Admission is by interview with the instructor.
