Performance -- fundamental way in which societies show their ideas about themselves
Course will focus on.. Drama & performances minorities made in the US.

though women make up a bigger population in US than men)
Movements:

Coloniality continues wherever you are, doesn't depend on the education or social class of
individuals.

Decolonial aesthetics -- how Western aesthetics categories (beauty, representation) came to
dominate all art and its value, and to organize and control the way we think of ourselves and
others (whites or blacks, rich or poor, strong or weak, good or evil)
Decolonial art -- exposes coloniality and its injustices.. Often w/ juxtaposition, parody etc.
Coloniality Is the idea to being apart of the societal norm, to be accepted by society thus they
live by what society deems as good, fashionable, and right.
Film with diverse casts do better than films w/ less diverse casts.

The end goal isn't to promote differences but end bigotry (not needing diversity as sense of
variety but need for equality and justice.
Discomfort of not talking about injustice can lead to even more injustice.. Not talking about
something can be just as damaging as talking about it in an offensive way.
1. Enjoy and appreciate theater
2. Use theater to examine problems that different people face in America
3. Diversity requirement
"Snowflakes"
Idea that college students wants place to be a safe space where they don't want to worry
about anything..
o SAFE SPACE?
Safe, in order to make mistakes.. Not a place where no one will ever challenge
you, but to feel uncomfortable (not in that way)
o BRAVE SPACE
Address the "safe space" misconception.
Net under high wire trapeze but setting up a space where you won't be
seriously injured… not one here you'll neer fall don.
