A1448: Laughing at Racial Satire in Splash Spring 15 (May. 02, 2015)
In this class, we will analyze and compare the satirical methods used to discuss race and the motivations for these approaches as exemplified in the two productions. We aim to uncover the motives of the directors and approach of the actors, as well as analyze certain phrases, methods of dress, speech patterns, and etc. used to arrive at the performer's point, and then to draw conclusions about the possible statements being made by these satirical choices. Overall, we hope to laugh a lot and learn about how to understand each other a little better and why comedy is such a great tool to do so. :-)
