This course provides a perspective on, and an appreciation of, theatre by studying the historical development, continuum, and evolution of the values, methods, and theories of the practitioners of the New Stagecraft, the collaborative relationship between the director and the designer, and the basic principles of visual and aural theatrical design. This course exposes students to significant theories and movements that have shaped the visual style of the American stage; familiarizes students with theatre's significant figures, techniques, conventions, styles, and terminology; promotes productive dialogue among student directors, actors, designers, writers, and technicians; and imparts a greater appreciation of the performing arts.
