ITAL 5543 Theater Practicum (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

Theater has always been a quintessentially Italian genre, from Renaissance comedies to the experimentations of the 1900s. Students will carefully read Carlo Goldoni's La locandiera, one of the most revolutionary and influential plays of 18th century theater. The course is divided in two parts: in the first one students will closely analyze the text in light of its historical, social and literary context. In the second part the whole class will stage the play, and prepare every detail involved in such process: choose costumes, props and setting, direct, and ultimately act.
