THDA 210 - Community-Based Theatres


In almost every town in the world, in a rich tradition spanning millennia, communities make theatrical representations of themselves: their heroes, their unsung neighbors, their struggles, their aspirations. Community-based theatre is made by, for and about communities, and the varieties, strategies, controversies and triumphs of this form are the content of this course. In the United States, which is the geographical focus of this course, community-based theatre has emerged from rural and urban communities, communities of color, communities of coalitions united toward a cause - we will learn from historical and scholarly accounts, and from participants, about many of these efforts. We also will explore the Twin Cities’ own deep history of community-based theatre-making, and participate in at least one major community project during the semester. Offered every other spring semester. (4 Credits)
