THTR 310 - Sexuality, Performance and Culture (4)

This course will examine the relationship between sexuality and performance, with a particular focus on how queer/lesbian/feminist identities have been expressed, re-imagined and subverted in the performing arts. With a focus on plays, films, and theoretical texts, the course will consider how art made by queer/lesbian/feminist artists both reflects and transforms culture. Definitions of sexual and cultural identity will be examined through theoretical texts as well as historical and cultural markers.
