This course investigates indigenous theatrical literature and performances from the 1970s to the present day. This will be a global course that will examine indigenous theatrical practices and stories from North and South America, Australia, and the Middle East. Special attention will be given to dramatic and comedic works that highlight the patterns of colonialism, capitalism, and attempted extermination. In addition to studying theatrical texts, observing videos of performances, and engaging guest artist speakers; the course will assist the students in designing plans of action to initiate racial, economic, and environmental justice to begin answering the issues presented in the plays examined. These plays will include works by William S. Yellow Robe, Jr., Hanay Geiogamah, Vickie Ramirez, Larissa FastHorse, Jane Harrison, Tony Dandurand, Alberto de la Cruz Cruz, and more. This course fulfills an elective requirement for Theater majors and minors.
