SPAN-446-01 Hispanic Theater: Cervantes
Spring for 2012-2013
Hispanic Theater, Theory and Practice: Cervantes (SPAN 446) is a performance course in which students perform in Spanish two entremeses by Miguel de Cervantes, Spain’s most celebrated writer and author of Don Quixote. These hilarious, fast-paced plays keep audiences roaring, yet explore some of the most fundamental issues of human existence: racial and ethnic prejudice, the war between the sexes, faith and superstition, the power of art to create psychological realities. Students will be responsible for nearly all aspects of the production: performance, sets, music, programs, marketing, and costumes. They will work with a professional acting coach and lighting designer. There will be no final exam, but students will be required to attend rehearsals during regularly scheduled class hours and, as the opening approaches, on evenings and weekends.
