THTD 24800 - Native American Performance

Course Credit: 1
NATIVE AMERICAN PERFORMANCE The performance traditions within Native American cultures are extremely rich and diverse, embracing ritual, myth, spirituality, oral literature, art, music, dance, film, and, more recently, improvised and written scripts and digital performance. A survey of this tremendous diversity would be impossible; accordingly, the course intends to indicate and suggest the diversity of recent Native performance in two ways: first, by focusing specifically on the range of recent performance practices of specific Alaskan Native and Native American peoples, and second, by the study of recent texts and performances by Native theatre groups and performance artists.
