THEA-260 The Choreopoem

Inspired by the original choreopoem by Ntozake Shange, this course introduces the choreopoem form, investigating the concept of the living text as it applies to collaboration across multiple disciplines. Using literary analysis, creative writing, and theatre, students research the choreopoem form, write one as a class, and publicly perform it, reflecting on the tension of intention vs. impact in performance spaces. Sophomore or higher standing required. (Same as AFRC-260 and WRIT-260.) 4 SH. CC: Interdisciplinary, Diversity Intensive, Team Intensive.
