This course intends to provide its students with the skills and knowledge needed to understand theatre, staging and direction, within the framework of the second-level degree descriptors (i.e., the Dublin Descriptors). First of all, as per the first Dublin Descriptor, theatre staging and direction should be understood by examining in depth and critically interpreting both its written and visual sources).
At the end of this course, the students should be able to:
- apply the aforementioned skills and knowledge when autonomously taking on critical understanding of theatrical events, fully framing them within the correct historical and cultural contexts (as per the second Descriptor);
- manage complex judgments and information on staging, theatrical activities and all their different actors (as per the third Descriptor);
- transmit in a clear and unambiguous way the knowledge they gained, by making the most of the specialized terms used in the field (as per the fourth Descriptor);
- develop further skills in autonomous learning when study and critical learning in staging an theatre direction are concerned, making the most of all methods of historical and artistic survey 8as per the fifth Descriptor).
The minimum learning level for this course is considered reached by students when they become able to navigate the history of staging and theatre direction by applying the correct analytical tools to the critical interpretation of staging.
