Winter Term '01 Time Schedule for Theatre and Drama.


THTREMUS 399. Topics in Drama.

Section 002 Performing Gender: Dramatizing from Oral Sources. (3 credits). Meets with Women's Studies 483.004.

Instructor(s): Glenda Dickerson (glendad@umich.edu)

Prerequisites: Theatre 181.

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

A research/performance class that will explore how to make drama from what may seem to be unlikely sources.

The course will spin around the question of "voice": what does it mean to be the subject of your own dicourse? Examination of the question of voice will unfold in four sections over the course of the academic term: the signifying voice, the sacred voice, the I Am voice and the millennial voice.

Students will have the opportunity to uncover the dramatic potential in emancipatory narratives which kill the slave and give birth to the free woman; narratives from ordinary people which recount history from an eyewitness point of view; provocative autobiographies of, for example, Miriam Makeba, Joann Little, Angela Davis and Ruth Brown, which signify our popular culture; as well as songs, stories, myths and current events which reveal the archetypes informing our collective psyche.

The class will do research to excavate life stories of too often forgotten women and perform episodes from their passion.
