Topics course. 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 will bring stories from page to stage for a final presentation in Spanish. Performance strategies will be utilized during the course to enhance foreign language skills. Prerequisites: SPN 220 or equivalent. No previous acting experience required. Enrollment limited to 19.
