OFFERINGS

DESCRIPTION

The advent of film and television has highlighted the artificiality of live theatre and made it seem, for many, a redundant mode of communication. In response modern drama has been preoccupied with articulating a new role for itself, focusing attention on its own rituals and the intensity of the actor/audience relationship, and drawing power from the contradictions of its form. This unit aims to introduce a range of provocative late 20th-century dramatic texts and to consider the kind of voice modern drama has developed.

WEIGHT: 12.5%

ASSESSMENT: 1x500 word exercise (10%), 1x3000 word essay (50%), 1x2hr exam (40%)

TEACHING PATTERN: 5 contact hours fortnightly (13 wks)
