This course examines how genres and texts renew themselves through performance choices and adaptation. Students will challenge the authority of the original work and explore how a selection of "sacred" texts such as Othello, A Streetcar Named Desire, A Doll's House, or Waiting for Godotare altered through performance iterations.
