ד"ר רות שור
The aim of this course is to question the role of theatre in the twenty-first century.
Which theatre innovations have occurred in recent years?
How have theatre makers understood the art of the stage to challenge previous assumptions?
How can the art of theatre respond to social and cultural developments?
And how have theatre makers reinvented this medium?
The course begins with a look at theatre directors and companies who have reinterpreted the classics for the contemporary stage. From there, we will be looking at what constitutes a reinvention of 'drama' and how recent trends in immersive theatre have taken a global turn towards a more interactive approach to the stage.
Finally, we will question how theatre travels internationally through theatre festivals and what role established theatre institutions play in that context.
The course will include a historical dimension that questions the location and significance of physical theatre spaces in the modern city space.
It will further investigate how such notions are re-evaluated as theatre has been put into quarantine.
