HISP 285 - Bilingual Community Theater

Semester Offered: Fall
0.5 unit(s)
The aims of the course are three-fold. First, playwriting and revision, rehearsal and performance, all provide active language learning opportunities with a strong component of peer teaching and learning. Second, all participants learn about drama and stage craft. Third, the course forms part of Vassar’s enhanced commitment to community engaged learning. Participation is open to a mixed group of Vassar students and members of the local Hispanic community, each of whom would write a one-act play (Vassar students writing in Spanish, Hispanic community members in English) and work together on revising the texts. The course culminates in public performances, again by mixed-language groups, in which the authors would also work in their non-native language as directors of their own plays. Andrew Bush.
