THEA 319 - Latin American and Latino Theater

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: ENGL 102; and THEA 110 or THEA 115
Theater created by Latino/a playwrights and performers has served as a vehicle for both artistic expression and social and political change. Organized geographically, this course begins with work representative of the Southern Cone and then considers the Chicano, Puerto Rican and Cuban American experiences in light of issues such as hybridized identities, language, immigration and generational conflict. Representative works by contemporary Latino/a and Latin American playwrights will be examined and will be supplemented by critical texts, film and recordings of live performance. Through analysis of these texts and their productions, students will gain an understanding of common themes and distinct styles of Latino/a performance. Offered annually. (CFPA; CGCL; CMCL; CWRT)
