TDM 138X. Anti-Theater

Instructor: David Levine
Day & Time: Wednesdays 3-5:45pm

What if the classics offer us nothing? What if catharsis is BS?  What if the "power of stories" is just marketing, and theater is inherently reactionary, elitist, out-of-date, and steeped in white supremacy?  What then?
This studio class takes these positions as givens, and tries to create something faster, slyer, less prone to institutional capture. Students will create new works, rip apart old ones, and process the structural conditions of "American Theater".
