The subject aims to use the practical and theoretical exploration of the concept of performance dramaturgy to develop students’ potential to make theatre and become reflective theatre practitioners, aware of the relationship between theatre and society.
This subject introduces students to the concept of dramaturgy as a critical tool in devising live performance. The basis of this process is the translation of a central idea and theme, through research, design, documentation and practical investigation, into a studio-scale devised live performance and to reflect on both process and performance. The students will develop their ability to write dramaturgical analysis of live performance.
On completion of this subject students should:
Practical project: process, performance and documentation. Group project, 20 mins performance - end of semester (60%)
Written Assessment 1. Essay (2000 words) - assessment period (40%)
Attendance hurdle 80%
