EGH115 : Theatre Practice: Interpreting Texts

Convener(s): Dr Frances Babbage


Please note: This module may or may not run in any given semester. Please check with the tutor.

General Information

This module will explore the processes through which texts written for theatrical performance ('plays') may be effectively interrogated, interpreted, and translated into performances. This will involve seeing one or more productions and analysing the relationship between the written and the performance texts, but the main emphasis wll be on the first-hand, studio-based practical exploration of text(s). Though some consideration may be given to the perspectives of designers, directors and others, students will engage with text(s) primarily as imaginative, inventive and creative performers and interpreters of text(s). Working as a member of an ensemble, all students will contribute to the preparation of a text-based performance.
