TA 3650 - Looking Critically at Film and Stage

In this course, students will explore and evaluate means of responding critically to the performance media of stage and film. Students will be assigned readings in critical theory to ground their viewing of over a dozen assigned films and stage productions (some live, others videotaped, all viewed outside class). The course will culminate in a final project in which each student critically analyzes (in writing) a particular performance from a specific critical perspective.
