Performance matters in the world. Artists always respond to the problems of their time. And theatre-makers can be the first to respond when issues emerge. In this course, you will explore how artists create performances that engage audiences in contemporary debates of our time. How is performance intervening in gender politics, race relations, refugee crises and climate change? You will explore the social origins of current issues and the methods theatre-makers are using to respond. With the skills that you develop, you will come to understand how theatre-makers use innovation in performance to transform our relation to the world. You will learn how the world works within theatre and how theatre works in the world.
