Shakespeare: Text and Performance (6 points)


Leader: Sue Tweg

Clayton First semester 2004 (Day)

Synopsis: In this unit we look at nine of Shakespeare's plays, both as texts on the page for study and analysis, and as blueprints for performance work. The aim is to encourage you to experience plays as both imaginative poetry and living theatre for today. We explore how plays have been understood at different historical times and in different cultures. There will be a weekly two-hour workshop for all students, plus an additional (optional) hour long performance workshop on a selected play each Wednesday afternoon.

Contact Hours: 2 hour workshop (plus optional 2 hours) per week
