The Soul of True Theatre

GENINT 721.602

Osher (50+). In this course, we deepen our understanding of theatre.


About this course:

Theatre is something wonderful to behold, but really, what is theatre? Aristotle tried to understand the nature and very soul of Greek drama in his Poetics, and many others have attempted the same feat down the ages. In this course, we develop an understanding and appreciation for theater, beginning with its basic ingredients to the different expressions of those same ingredients. We cover theatre for philosophers, poets, pessimists, protestors, playboys, preachers, and photographers. Finally, we shall discuss present theatre.
