How do plays and performances, past and present, tell us who we are, show us what it is to be human and in so doing shape the societies we live in? What is the relationship of text to performance, and the place of performance in Aotearoa New Zealand and the world? This course traces the history of theatre and performance from ancient Greece to present-day New Zealand, from the great tragedies to plays about ordinary people and, finally, to popular, cultural and social performances, Kapa Haka, professional wrestling and Mika's ethnic burlesques. Students will read plays, see performances and create theatrical experiments.
