Make notes on the following questions as you read and view the films:

1.  How does “cross-dressing” function similarly/differently in Kabuki and Takarazuka as opposed to American drag and Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo?

2.  What additional information do you need to know (beyond what is offered in the readings) to truly answer question #1?

Reading Response

In a 1-2 page writing, develop one idea from your thinking about the questions above.  Describe at least two other ideas that are in tension with your main idea.  Attempt to come to a conclusion.
