Performances by the Performing Politics course. Discretion advised.
Performing Politics is a Complex Problems and Enduring Questions course at Boston college. This course explores how marginalized and oppressed people have used public performances “in the theater and on the streets” to make political claims about human rights and social justice. The course examines a range of political plays and protest movements, asking how and why relatively powerless people use public performances to make political claims. Can theater be both good politics and good art? Students create their own political performances (e.g., short plays, puppet shows, videos, etc.), learning about various aspects of theater while developing a better understanding of their own political views and interests.
