The goal of the course is to enhance the student’s understanding of theatre/art performances, both in its relation to the audience and to the theatre practitioner, through widening the meaning of terms like analysis and criticism, and strengthening the student’s ability to communicate the process in different ways.

Themes of individual meetings:

  1. Tendencies in contemporary European theatre, mainly through examples from filmed performances.
  2. Investigating different tools for presenting and discussing performances.
  3. The body and the site as vehicles for presenting and scrutinizing theoretical and artistic material.
  4. Students‘ presentation of performances or theories, based on their own choice.
