THEA 113. What's Past is Prologue: Practice and Perspective in Theatre History I. 4 Units.

This seminar course examines our theatrical inheritance and how theatre has been conceived and utilized historically. By looking comparatively at theatrical works from Ancient Greece to 1800, we will discover how theatre practices reflect the societies from which they emerge; how theatrical traditions and aesthetics change over time; and how the diversity of what is called “theatre” in the present day arises from a wide array of performance practices, time periods, and cultures. This course fulfills the IIA general education breadth requirement in language and literature as well as the diversity requirement. (DVSY, GE2A)
