It is strongly suggested that students attempt this course after completing THE1001 and THE1002.


This course focuses on the interdependent relationship between theory and practice as it informs theatre practitioners. Models of specific theatre methodologies will form the basis of exploration, examining specifically the ways in which theatre has been framed and defined in the manifestos of key theatrical figures such as Brecht, Artaud, Brook, Tzara, and Grotowski. Through a series of lectures and workshops, students will be encouraged to participate in small group activities in order to replicate and explore these models. The course will culminate in work-in-progress presentations to either an in-house or appropriate public audience.
