CHIN 464 - Modern Chinese Drama
Modern Chinese drama--"Huaju" (word drama)--features realistic spoken dialogue rather than the sung poetic dialogue of the traditional Chinese dramatic forms. It resembles Western-style stage drama and often contains social commentary. In addition to readings on the history of modern Chinese drama, we will spend most of the time reading two representative modern plays and watching videotaped performances of them: Thunderstorm (Cao Yu's script, 1936) and The Teahouse (Lao She's script, 1957). We will pay close attention to cultural meanings and to the use of language, particularly Beijing dialect, in both the written scripts and the stage performances. Conducted in Chinese.
