Topics course. May be repeated once with a different topic. Normally offered each spring.: The phenomenon of theater as a form of resistance and the use of performance made by artists and activists as a way of political protest is something already seen during the era of military dictatorship in Argentina (1981) through Teatro Abierto. Through the study of dramatic texts, news articles and web blogs, plus the application of actor-training methodologies, we bring stories from page to stage for a final presentation in Spanish. Performance strategies are used during the course to enhance foreign language skills. Prerequisites: SPN 220 or equivalent. No previous acting experience required. Enrollment limited to 19.
