CRN: 92837
Instructor(s): Fallis, Alex

Are historical surveys of the art of the theatre. The history of theatre will be studied in terms of the evolution of performance and of the physical theatre from their origins in a variety of social rituals and contexts through to their present plurality of forms. At the same time, the nature and function of the various components of theatrical performance (acting, directing, design, etc.) will be analysed in terms of period philosophical, social, cultural, political and religious contexts. These courses are open to non-theatre students.
