INST 2608 - Theatre: Performing/Reforming Society

Hours: 4
There is much to learn about a society through its theatre. In this course, we will study plays from around the world, focusing on the human and social issues—both unique and universal—reflected in them. We will explore theatre’s inherent ability to “hold the mirror up to man” and we will challenge ourselves to look deeply into this mirror in order to better understand the human condition. We will also examine ways in which theatre has been used as a powerful vehicle for social change. Finally, we will turn our attention to specific problems facing our Columbus-area community and consider ways in which theatre could be used to address these concerns.
