InhalteEuropean theatre looks back on a history of two and a half thousand years. The word theatre is derived from Greek théatron (Latin theatrum), literally meaning ´a space for observation´. Whether the actors' main form of expression is speaking, singing or dancing, or the actors are non-human as in puppet theatre, whether we refer to Greek tragedy or contemporary Physical Theatre, the term ´theatre´ applies to a large variety of genres and forms from the very origins until today. In this theory course we will attempt to identify constant elements that constitute ´theatre´ throughout the ages and analyse how these elements are related to one another in specific theatrical forms.

The aim of the course is to establish a general model that we can use as a heuristic tool to recognize and describe significant historical and structural changes in the system of theatre.

Can we learn to think theatrically?
