This module acts as an introduction to performance analysis for spectators who are not necessarily theatre specialists. It will look at contemporary live performance, engaging with various theatres and performance spaces in Melbourne, and introduce the languages, methods and theories we can use to discuss the performances we see. This adds depth to the experience of theatre-going and raises questions of how we become active theatre-goers and participants in an arts culture. It will engage with how theatre sits in relation to wider culture and society.
