SOULPEPPER ACADEMY: Texts and Contexts

We’ll read something, or various things, every week: plays, poetry, journalism, theory, as well as theatre and performance scholarship. We will read closely and inquire into audiences and reception; we’ll try to understand what these scripts and writings do (or did) in their cultures, contexts, and moments.  We’re going to consider theatre not as a curious and isolated pursuit but as a performance practice in a deep conversation with culture and society.
