This course introduces students to academic and professional writing within the field of theatre and performance studies. Students will study a wide variety of performance pieces — from operas to plays to musical theatre — from many historical periods and artistic movements. Such work with theatre and performance will help students develop content knowledge to write from an informed and credible position. To hone students’ writing, this course covers strategies for writing about performance pieces as written texts and as texts-in-performance.
