Math/Science Contemp. Theatre
Mathematics and Science as Art in Contemporary Theatre
In Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia, the playwright somewhat miraculously manages to use the tension between Euclidean geometry and modern fractal geometry to explore the classical/romantic dichotomy in literature, science, art, and human personality. This is just one example of how acclaimed playwrights such as Stoppard, Rinne Groff, Michael Frayn, Simon McBurney, and others have effectively incorporated mathematical and scientific themes for artistic purposes. Our goal is to explore this relatively recent phenomenon in theater with an eye toward understanding the complementary ways in which science and art aim to seek out their respective truths. The course is intended to be experiential in both theatrical and scientific terms; our explorations will include the staging of scenes and discussions of theatre as performance; we will also undertake labs in the various mathematical sciences related to the material within the plays.

White Playwrights/Black Topics
Having Their Say: Twentieth-Century Progressive White Playwrights on Black Topics
White playwrights have been accused of cultural appropriation of black literary material; however, during the 20th century, progressive white playwrights did not shy away from dramatizing difficult race-related themes—contextualizing the interconnections of racial dynamics and a forward-moving society. Many of those dramatists (such as Ridgely Torrence, Eugene O’Neill, Paul Green, George Sklar, Molly Kazan, Howard Sackler, Martin Duberman, Lanford Wilson, Tony Kushner, and Rebecca Gilman) tackled prevalent black issues, receiving respect and appreciation from diverse audiences. In this course students will examine works by white playwrights who dramatized topical issues pertaining to the social and political experience of African Americans.

Acting and Directing for the Camera
In this advanced workshop we will focus on the relationship between actors and directors in the context of live action media production (film, television, advertising, web series). Students will gain practical knowledge of actor-director engagement and insight into both facets of this process. Students will also analyze produced screenplays, practice actor-director communication, and direct and perform for the camera. All students will take turns fulfilling the roles of director and performer, culminating in recording and editing workshopped scenes. (FMMC 0105 or THEA 0102)
