What will I learn in Theatre & Performance Studies?
Theatre and Performance studies gives you the opportunity to discuss and explore about theatrical events as phenomena which involve communities. As an area of study and research, theatre studies investigates the performative nature of these events, how communities express themselves through performance and structures within which they operate, and the reasons and outcomes of this behaviour.
The field of theatre studies investigates how people relate to their immediate social, political, and religious contexts, and how these in turn inform the performance of events. Theatre studies therefore deals with the aesthetics and ethics of performance.
