This course offers both a theoretical and practical introduction to theatre. We will be thinking about what theatre is and can be, what it means for those who make it (audiences and practitioners alike) and how it gets made. Analysis of different approaches to theatre, including classical models of dramaturgy, realisms, through to postmodern experiments with form, devising from non-dramatic sources, performance art and community-engaged theatre, accompanies practical applications of playwriting, acting and performance, scenography, theatrical criticism, devising and the participation in production crews through the lab section (200L).
Three class hours plus a minimum of 50 hours working on productions under THEA 200L.
