SPAN 2097 Monologue:Being in the World
This course is only offered in the Summer Session.
What would people think if you spoke out loud to yourself, at length, in the middle of a crowded room? On stage in a theater? The reactions would probably differ. What, then, is the function of monologues on the stage and in the performance arts? For whom are they meant? In this course, taught in Spanish, students explore the rich and complex role of monologues from the perspective of rhetoric, psychology, philosophy, and performance. Students have the chance to examine and enjoy a combination of Spanish and Spanish American plays. From the contemporary period, students study a selected mix of short plays, casting monologues, and videos. Students also write their own monologues with the assistance of the professor and/or perform them under the tutelage of Spanish theater actor José Luis Patiño. Throughout the class, students focus on acquiring and delivering cultural meanings through improved pronunciation, tonality, delivery, and general presentation of oral work and performances.
