TH234 South African Theatre
The aim in this module is to trace South African Theatre from pre-colonial performance by indigenous peoples, through the process of colonisation, urbanisation, and Apartheid, to the post-Apartheid period. It will particularly focus on how the socio-historic and economic changes have affected the development of theatre in South Africa.
