THE 457 - Theatres of the African Diaspora (3)

Theatre has been practiced in Africa since before recorded history and taken a variety of performative forms: storytelling, masking, puppetry, music, and dance among them. This course introduces these traditional forms and traces their influence across the globe as they were spread and hybridized through the African diaspora. Studying not only traditional forms but also playscripts written by Africans and African-Americans in various countries, this course examines the lasting legacy of African performance across Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, and the U.S. Junior or Senior standing required.
