19-20 DT1400: Theatre & Ideas

Welcome to DT1400 Theatre & Ideas. This is an interdisciplinary course. That means that we will explore how ideas from other disciplines can illuminate our critical and creative engagement with theatre and performance and how, in turn, theatre and performance can inform and interrogate other areas of life. Theatre & Ideas will take you beyond the vocabulary of theatre and into the terrain of philosophy, critical theory, economic theory, cultural and literary studies, politics, science, and so on, but always with a view to probing how these offer a toolbox of ideas to equip you for the study and practice of theatre.
