Odyssey: Ibsen, Master Builder of Modern Theater

Henrik Ibsen created a revolution in traditional theater, unleashing energies that continue to drive theater more than a century later. In this course we read four of Ibsen's major plays (A Doll's House, Ghosts, The Wild Duck, Hedda Gabler), and learn how shifting cultural views provoked his staging of human stories in radically new ways, prompting innovations in both subject matter and technical form. We'll also watch film clips of popular theater productions to compare the 'play on the page' with the 'play on the stage.' Required text is Ibsen's Selected Plays, ed. Brian Johnson. Norton Critical Edition, 2004.
