Through the close study of a selected dramatic text, students will apply methods of textual analysis, and processes for the realisation of text as performance. The application of both Structuralist and post-Structuralist readings of text to issues of authorial intent, directorial strategies, and the problematics of conventional modes of acting will be considered.
Students will undertake a case study of an artist or company working in the field of contemporary cross-cultural performance. The continuum between the 'performing self' and the 'constructed character' will be analysed, drawing on examples from contemporary performance practice in areas of monodrama and stand-up comedy.
Case study analysis report 1600 words 40%, solo performance project 40%, documentation and notation of performance project 20%.
