Dramaturgy for the Audience: Magellanica
with Luan Schooler
The pandemic has introduced new ways of creating theatrical experiences and revived older forms like the radio play. In this class, we will explore differences between stage productions and audio plays, and examine how ART’s audio dramas have been adapted and designed. It is recommended that students listen to the audio drama prior to the class; they will also receive the audio-adapted script two weeks before class begins.
January 25 & February 1, Mondays (2 Classes)
Magellanica by E.M. Lewis:
This class will focus on the structure of this 5-part epic play, and how the specific style of each act keeps the story – and the audience — propelling forward. The use of soliloquies and layered realities will also be explored, along with how the sound design can be both informative and emotive.
