16/20 - Un Peu de Théâtre for Communication and Global Competence

November 11, 2011
by CEA CAPA Content Creator

Eve Ensler, creator of "The Vagina Monologues", has a new piece of work sur scene - à Paris. "I Am An Emotional Creature", a play performed by six women of diverse nationalities, backgrounds, colors, shapes, sizes and sexual orientations, is currently playing at Ciné 13 in the 18th district.

When the curtain went up last Wednesday night, Paris became the extended classroom for students from CEA's Communication and Global Competence course, offered at the Global Campus.
The performance, a mix of monologues across the emotional spectrum, combined with singing, dancing, and videography, addresses the female experience all over the world. The work also inspired the creation of V-girls, "a global network of girl activists and advocates empowering themselves and one another to create the change they imagine for the world."
CEA Paris Assistant Academic Dean and course instructor, Christopher Edwards, explained that he took students to see the performance, "because gender roles are central to understanding modern societies. A discussion on masculine and feminine roles foreshadowed some of the themes we then saw in the play. I seized upon the opportunity to take the students to an English-language play in Paris - something we have the luxury of doing from time to time here in the French capital."
Bien sur, Thursday's class was dedicated to discussing and analyzing the varied reactions from students following the performance!
CEA study abroad programs create integrated learning environments that align classroom instruction with the rich cultural offerings of each CEA city location.
