|Subject Overview:||Australian Theatre and Performance is a study of representative Australian performing arts selected for historical, dramatic, theatrical and cultural significance. Important plays, performance groups, and artists from the 1960s until the present-day will be discussed and analysed. Students will read plays, view live works and performance documentation, engage in archival research, and undertake textual and performance analysis. An interdisciplinary approach combining aspects of theatre and performance studies and cultural history will inform the subject. Artistic trends are discussed alongside analysis of social, political and cultural movements and contexts evident in the development and expansion of the national performance scene. Australian Theatre and Performance investigates the contemporary senses of diversity and innovation in the arts as well as examining challenges and the changing cultural landscape.|
