School of Theatre, Performance and Cultural Policy Studies
TH320 Intercultural Theatre Practices
This module sets out to look at the implications of contemporary intercultural performance practice in the context of globalisation in terms of form, focus, ideological and ethical implications.
On successful completion of the module students should be able to:
- demonstrate a critical analysis of cultural differences and to examine the processes of their mediation through the various cultures;
- articulate an understanding of the concepts of (1) cultural in relation to identity and aesthetics, (2) the difference between inter- and multiculturalism, and (3) the impact of cultural imperialism and globalisation in relation to theatre production
- analyse how theatre as a form can both reflect and challenge ideas of cultural representation and expression
- engage in research-led investigation of these ideas in both primary and secondary material and communicate their findings both orally and in writing.
We will explore the course through
• focussed reading of primary and secondary material for each tutorial session
• Group discussion and presentation, including visual material and textual analysis
• Research in small groups for presentation in class • Some practical class work
• Two written assessments (essay & critique) over the two semesters and an examination in the form of a research presentationConvenor:
