This course will focus upon Unit 1, section B of the AS syllabus.

Each 4-hour text session will be devoted to an analysis of the respective text’s key themes, of historical productions where relevant and of the processes of production. We will also focus upon examination technique.

The Thursday sessions will be dedicated to establishing and understanding the respective practitioners’ theories and work. Students commonly tend to misinterpret basic staging conventions and techniques of practitioners which will be clarified.
