Community Theatre and Performance
Examines the socio-cultural, political, economic and aesthetic significance of theatre, performance and film in community contexts. Students will be introduced to the key theoretical and methodological practices which have influenced the role of the artist in community performances with an emphasis on regional contexts: both locally and internationally. Models of praxis which underpin community performance in regional communities will be explored as the basis for identifying appropriate methodologies within a variety of socio-cultural, political and economic contexts. Students will be required to research and plan performance projects which construct a socio-political voice for specific marginalized communities. The preparation of funding and ethics applications is integral to such planning. The course will also examine the role of the artist in exploring the relationship between the socio-political voice of the community and the construction of cultural identities and spiritual beliefs.
