Feminism and Theatre

This module aims to offer students a way to analyse and create performance through feminist perspectives. Students will be exposed to selected feminist discourses focusing on the issues of language, body and performativity and explore how the theoretical perspectives can inform their own theatre-making particularly in relation to aesthetics and embodiment. Involving various group and individual research/practice tasks, the module will lead students to develop a practice based project in which they can explore questions through either a text-based performance predicated on their creative interpretation of a play or a devised performance reflecting their personal process of researching feminist theatre.
