THDA 266 - Performance/Documents/Rights

Cross-Listed as INTL 266 
This course examines experimental techniques in contemporary performing arts and media that theorize the history, politic, and everyday practice of human rights. Locating the avant-garde as a site for critical interdisciplinary work in performance and rights, we study the prevalence of contemporary uses of “the archive,” which works between database and narrative in order to think the interlinking challenges of memory, narrative, and documentation. We engage works in Theatre Studies, Performance Studies, Dance Studies, Critical Theory, Legal Studies, Media and Documentary Studies, Visual Art, as well as plays, multimedia performance texts, literatures, film, and events. Sources include artistic projects from Latin America, Algeria, Morocco, France, Germany, South Africa, Hungary, former-Czechoslovakia, Indonesia, Australia, Canada, England, and the US. Offered alternate years. (4 Credits)
