Description

This course follows the history of a select number of U.S. Latina/o and Latin American paradigms of using theatre for social change. Students in this class will learn about Augusto Boal's Theatre of the Oppressed, the actos of the Chicana/o Movement, guerilla theatre in forms used throughout Latin America, and activist U.S. Latina/o play in mainstream theatres. Students in this course will develop their own actos or guerilla theatre skits at the end of the class and hold performances (hopefully both on campus and in a community-oriented venue) at the end of the semester. Students do not need to choose Latina/o related issues for their political performances. The Latina/o element of the course lies in learning the history of political theatre techniques that have been successfully employed by Latina/os in the Americas and applying these strategies for social change in newly developed performance pieces.
