Heidi Nees-Carver | Tu 2:30-5:20PM | Wolfe Center 201

Description: This course explores the theoretical and practical considerations that shape Native American drama and performance in the 20th and 21st centuries. We will consider the ways in which Native artists and theatre companies create works that are informed by the political, social, and intellectual forces within particular cultural and historical contexts and we will examine ways in which Native artists use theatre and performance to subvert colonial structures, challenge previous representations produced by non-natives, employ humor as a means of resistance, create spaces for healing, raise awareness, and instigate change. Furthermore, we will consider the ways in which indigenous performances are influenced by indigenous epistemologies. In our explorations, we will critically engage with play scripts, videos, audio recordings, images, interviews, articles, and other primary and secondary texts.
