Shakespeare in Performance

Spring 2021

Taught By: Cecilia Rubino

Section: A

CRN: 9021

Credits: 4

Performed around the globe, Shakespeare continues to be transformed by actors, directors, designers and diverse communities who make the plays their own. In this course, we will concern ourselves with these essential questions: How do Shakespeare’s plays actually work in performance in an array of mediums including: theater, film, and new media? How did Shakespeare collaboratively stage the plays with actors four centuries ago? How do actors and directors today perform and transform Shakespeare’s texts? And what generative themes transcend different performance choices? Students will develop critical responses to performances of Shakespeare and have the option of engaging in scene work. This course fulfills the dramatic literature requirement for Lang Theater Majors & Minors, is an Acting Elective opportunity for students and will meet synchronously. For this course, the students need only a laptop with a working camera or an external webcam (no preference) and a reliable high-speed internet connection.
