This subject consolidates knowledge of theatre history and theory in context of the tools provided by performance analysis – namely description, analysis, interpretation and critical perspective. The focus on case study performances and related practices, both in theatre making and also actor training, forms the basis for critical reflection upon individual practices and processes. The main aim is to develop skills and competencies in formal research, presentation and documentation, particularly those with a practical component. The course also functions as preparation towards a research higher degree. This unit is co- delivered to BFA Acting and BFA Theatre students.
