The class will use a variety of texts of Samuel Beckett as the basis for the class. These will include the short stories, plays and radio plays. We will watch a selection of the Beckett on Film (19 films x 19 directors) series produced by Michael Colgan and Alan Moloney. The series includes a number of interpretations for the plays from the directors. This approach will be the basis of the class. Students will be expected to a series of short projects followed by a more sustained one, which could be an animation, installation, design, video piece. Public showings will be required. Please note that this course may require additional materials to be purchased by the student.
