Performance in an Irish Context: Performance/Manifesto  

This course explores the performance tradition of Irish theatre. Students learn to present the text, language and predominantly historical rural landscape of Irish playwrights including Friel, Beckett, and Marina Carr. This experience will then be developed into the creation of personal research narratives for performance, drawing on a contrasting sense of place. This will be complemented by engagement with the political and social realities of the city. Through a carefully structured program, students will learn ways to understand and approach the role of silence in Beckett, voice in Friel, or the shaping by landscape of characters, language, and movement in Carr. Students will respond to the visual and social prompts of the city of Dublin as they are stimulated and nurtured to develop source material for performance and presentation. Prerequisite: One previous college-level fundamentals of acting or performance class / theater performance course. Note: This course has supplemental fees for theatrical entrances and other field activities.

Storytelling: Writing Irish Cultural Narratives  

This course will examine the role of storytelling in Irish culture and the way in which ‘story’ is used to create a narrative of Irish culture. It will provide an introduction to traditional oral folk traditions, modernist documentations in the Irish short story, theatrical performance, filmic narratives, and the contemporary iteration of cultural change on the streets of its capital city. Through exploring the tradition of storytelling in Ireland, from conservation to subversion and from folk tale to street art, students will discover in and out of the classroom how this embedded feature of Irish culture allows and obstructs how to present and represent a nation to itself and others and how the students too can create a story. Students will have an opportunity to practice immersive research and to engage in a variety of different modes of storytelling. Note: This course has supplemental fees for theatrical entrances and other field activities.

The Playwright in Practice: Writing for the Stage in 21st Century Ireland  

This course explores how Irish playwrights have contributed disproportionately to the output of English-language drama over the course of the 20th century. This practical playwriting course will interrogate the tradition of theatrical writing in the Irish capital of Dublin at a time when that tradition is undergoing radical changes in terms of form, experimentation, and the shifting role of the playwright in the process of theater-making. Challenged by a wide range of individual and group exercises, students will be exposed to a host of methodologies for writing and creating work for the stage specific to this unique moment in Irish theatrical history, and in the process gain an appreciation for the important role writers still play in making theatrical performance. Students will examine the range of skills required to write and present successful drama; and will explore, discuss, and present new dramatic work in a supportive environment. Note: This course has supplemental fees for theatrical entrances and other field activities.
