Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2022-2023.

This course will use the process devised by Fiasco Theatre Company to produce a play by Shakespeare with reduced support, inventive design, and smaller casts. The selected text will be arranged so that between eight to twelve actors can perform all the roles and physical support relies on inventiveness, economy, and adaptation. At the beginning of the semester students will study the language, history, and acting techniques necessary to perform the play and then rehearse the text--devising solutions to the complexities of production--during the remainder of the semester. Students may participate as actors, dramaturgs, or designers. The semester's work culminates in a presentation of a "reduced/condensed" production of the selected text.

When Offered Spring.
