Start: Friday, November 13, 2020 10:00AM
Two conferences, along with two roundtables with local scholars and practitioners, will highlight and examine the new comedia studies with an emphasis on performance and transnational reception.
The first conference, “Making Classics: Canonicity and Performance,” will address these questions: How does comedia fit within current conceptualizations of the theater canon and its classics? How does performance transform the canon, whether by highlighting new works or re-envisioning them?
This conference is held in conjunction with LA Escena 2020, a virtual festival of Hispanic classical theater presented online from November 12–16, 2020. For more information about the festival and to RSVP for free performances, visit www.anoisewithin.org/la-escena-2020/.
