About this Course

This module builds on the three streams of study introduced in DRAM101.  It focuses on the origins of theatre in the North and South as a way in to engaging with different performance forms in relation to context.  Students are introduced to theatre in the Southern Africa, which includes ritual, orality and storytelling.  As the quintessential Northern example, students will engage with the origins of Greek theatre.  Practical components build on the theoretical study in the form of projects on storytelling, Greek messenger speeches and a ‘ritual’ dance drama.
