Course Content (Syllabus)
The overview of the act of performance during the second half of the 20th century, looking at theatre as the "great stage game", as a series of exchanges "between a text and a performance, between actors and a director, between a stage and an audience, between a theatre and a society" (Bernard Dort). What, after all, is the history of theater? Methodological concerns. The relationship between the history of theater and history as a whole. The connection between postwar theater and theater's previous eras. The relationship between the European and Modern Greek scenes. Modern-postmodern. Theatrical troupes and workshops. Directorial trends. Dramaturgical analysis of the great works of Sartre, Williams, Arthur Miller, Brecht, Beckett, Ionesco, Pinter, Albee, Bernhard, Heiner Muller, Koltès, Kane, Kambanellis, Anagnostaki, Kechaidis, Ritsos etc The course focuses, also, on the crisis in drama by studying the works of contemporary drama as well as postdramatical performances: the crisis of the dramatic character, the myth, the plot. Post-dramatic theatre - Performance art – happenings – dance theater.
