This subject studies the relationships between modernism, postmodernism and the Western drama of this century, so that students will be closely familiar with the main authors, forms and geopolitical sites that constitute the mainstream of the modern and postmodern paradigms of theatre and drama. The unit explores contemporary theories of the stage and identifies the problems involved in thinking of drama as both text and stage performance. It will also examine the political and cultural dimensions of theatre and drama in the modern and postmodern periods.
