So, you want to create a political act? Will it be comedic, somber, or full of rage? How can you form the act to accurately portray your stance in addition to being socially conscious? There are many factors to consider when constructing a political act. Political Burlesque is the class to help you start thinking critically about the why and how. Political Burlesque is designed to give the information and insight to comfortably (and responsibly!) create an act based on difficult or uneasy topics. With lecture, discussion, and videos of various political act examples, you will leave class with a new found understanding of what a political act means and the structure to devise a performance that says something.
