THEA 222 - Acting Asian American: The Performance of Identity


Fall or Spring (4) Tanglao-Aguas (College 200, ALV, ACTV, GER 4C, GER 6)

Beginning actor training for students who will perform from scripts dramatizing the Asian American community. Scene study involves research and analysis of the script's socio-historical background. The scripts may cover themes such as immigration, colonialism, discriminatory laws, gender stereotypes and hyper-sexualization, the fetish and sex trade, the Japanese American internment, the farm-workers labor movement, the Vietnam War, and Terrorism. Graded course work includes monologue and scene work, analytical and reflective essays, and a public performance celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage. (This course is anchored in the ALV domain, and also considers aspects of the CSI domain.) (Cross-listed with APIA 222 )
