THR 107 - Dramatic Text in Action

1 course unit
Dramatic Text in action focuses on the specific historical category of drama and its way of thinking and producing meaning.  This course teaches methods of textual analysis that specifically align with the tasks of theatre scholars and interpretive artists (as opposed to a literary studies paradigm).  The essential perspective is seeing plays as structures of actions that create and embody meaning, and thinking about how to show the event of the play through compositional practice.  Students will develop skills in locating and naming actions and events.  They will practice dramaturgical investigation, visualization, and textual and contextual analysis across a range of dramatic moments and styles.  Normally taken in Spring of first year, following Performance & Society.
Prerequisite(s): THR 105 Performance & Society
