This module addresses historical and contemporary links between avant garde theatre practices and political activism. It expands and deepens the study of artistic practices begun in Modernisms and Postmodernity A, with a focus on the activist elements of theatrical movements and parallel political organisations. The focus will be on workshop facilitation and students will be assessed on this core vocational skill. This module will focus on the relationship between play, plays and playing in socially-engaged and political theatre. ‘Play’ as a concept will be explored from many perspectives, including its importance in creative learning, playfulness in performative relationships to audience and the ‘play’ as a written text for interpretation. Understanding issues such as climate change, sustainable development and biodiversity requires knowledge about the political, moral and societal dimensions of environmental problems and solutions.

You’ll be able to choose between performing an already-existing text/score or devising/writing/composing your own work. The module is broad enough to reflect a range of contemporary practices, yet focused enough to provide a space for in-depth development of skills in and understanding of acting. By choosing this specialism, you will critically engage with experiencing, making and reflecting upon performance at the boundaries and between genres. You will explore performance that might take unconventional and or radical forms and actions and that plays with liveness, interaction and immediacy. This module is designed to give students a detailed overview of American Theatre in the 20th Century- its texts and contexts.
