The ancient Greek word for theatre means "the seeing place." As the actress Stella Adler put it, "it is the place people come to see the truth about life and the social situation." In Greece, people have been going to the theatre for healing, civic pride, patriotism, national identity, metaphysical searching, and entertainment since the 6th century BC.
This introduction to theatre course combines study of dramatic literature, theatre history, and performance. We will read classical and modern dramas and theatre theory; view museum displays as well as stage productions; and meet artists creating theatre in the midst of crisis today.
