THTR13065 Drama Performance III
In this course students focus on the performance
and production of contemporary dramatic works. To prepare for this
a practical study is made of major influences on Twentieth century
and recent dramatic expression. Influences investigated include:
realism, naturalism, surrealism, Epic Theatre, Absurdism, non-Western
theatre forms, film and television, new technologies and post-modernity.
Also studied is the role of the director and the influence of such
artists as Craig, Brecht, Meyerhold, Artaud, Brook, Grotowski and
Susuki. Critically, given the artistic and vocational significance
of film and television, a central component of the course is acting
for the screen.
