This module aims to introduce students to significant modern practitioners and theories through the analysis of key texts and historical periods and the application of theories to a selection of plays. It will consider a range of theoretical writings from Modernism to the present day and will examine the social, economic and cultural conditions of theatre production in a European and global context during the twentieth-century. The module seeks to embed theoretical debates within a historical understanding of the development of twentieth-century theatre and to foster an understanding of the impact of Modernist and historical Avant-garde movements and practitioners on contemporary performance practice. The module will explore theatrical theories through discussion and practice and will draw on a variety of materials, including visual, textual and audio.
