The Theater of the Absurd

Intermediate | Have you ever wanted to read weird books, see enormous costumes, laugh one minute and cry the next? We’ll study a literary movement called the Theater of the Absurd. We’ll ask questions like “What does it mean for something to be absurd,” “How can art respond to trauma,” and “How does theater respond to culture at large?” This class will involve lively discussions, short (optional) performances, creative experiments with absurdity, and writing our own dramatic scenes.
