THEATRE KNOWLEDGES AND PRACTICE
Credit points: 15
In this subject students are introduced to theatre and its knowledges - acting theory, theatre history and dramatic criticism. Studies of the actor, director, playwright, and critic, and their work in theatre companies will be approached using well-known examples from twentieth century theatre history and practice. Knowledges of theatre involve understanding its dynamic and interactive processes and the considerable changes in professional roles over time. While the focus is on the dominant forms of modern western theatre, consideration will be given to challenges from the innovative work of contemporary Australian and overseas practitioners.
