Content

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. Structuralist and post-Structuralist reading strategies will be used to investigate issues of interpretation, adaption, authorial intent and directorial authority. Students will undertake a case study of an artist or company working in the field of contemporary cross-cultural performance. The continuum between performed self and constructed character will be analysed, drawing on contemporary performance practice in areas of monodrama and stand-up comedy.
