Performing NYC 2016 | Pace University

Course Description: In this course we will critically examine the relationship between gender, race, class and performance in New York City.

Course Overview:Throughout this semester we will examine performances that focus on an exploration and articulation of gender, class, race and ethnic identifications. We will pay  special attention to performance spaces that have been historically important in the development of experimental theatre, dance, poetry and performance art. We will also consider New York City itself as a site for public performance, protest, and the performance of everyday life.
