Winthrop Theater Apre Lesson 1: Syllabus Review & Intro
Transcript of Winthrop Theater Apre Lesson 1: Syllabus Review & Intro
Ugh always told his part. Oog always told his. Until one day, Oog was killed by an animal they were hunting. When Ugh came back, everyone was very sad, and he had to tell everyone what happened to Oog. Except this time...
He had to play the part of Oog. People really felt like Oog was really there.
I thought that I had made this story up--but Robert Edmond Jones did first and I read him a long , long time ago.
Memories are ghosts, too.
We are here and then...
Who are we?
Are we good or are we evil?
Why are we here?
Why is life so cruel?
WHY DO WE HAVE TO DIE??
What is the essence of theater?
How is it created?
How did it evolve?
How is it made?
Do all cultures have theatre?
We don't really know when theater started, REALLY. But I think it might have had something to do with Ugh and Oog.
To entertain us
To teach us a lesson
To remember brave deeds
To call the dead back to life
To bring the past into the present
To bring the present into the future
Why do people do theater?
You put your heart and soul
into it and then....
Each class will involve multimedia presentation and discussion.
We will also use in class script reading, round table discussion, video, and in-class presentation.
To redeem this empty life
And then - no need to endure anymore
-Jonathan Larson, Rent
