Introduction to Dramatic Art

This course focuses on script analysis (the examination of how a dramatic text is put together). Exploring a diverse range of dramatic forms spanning histories and geogrphies, we will study how a play and its structural characteristics offer possible meaning on the page and on the stage. What different analytical tools help us interpret a play text or production? How does a play's dramatick structure and historical circumstance inform its visualization and staging in a specific time and space for an intended audience? The course will evaluate written texts as well as live performances.
