THTR 209 Theater and Environment

This course focuses on art that addresses issues of environment, ecology, and the natural world through the medium of live theater. Topics will include: ethics, environmentalism, capitalism, ecological disasters, land use, climate change, genetic modification, and animal rights. We will also read articles on green theater, criticism and theory. Examining these issues in the context of performance allows us a ringside seat to some of the most important issues and debates of our time. [H, GM2, V, W]
