Power Plays

Level 4 (15 credits)

Power Plays explores how power dynamics, especially in relation to race, gender, disability and cultural identity, have been examined through play texts, performance and critical debates. We will explore these issues through practical workshops, developing your skills in play text analysis, performance and technical theatre skills. The module also aims to develop your critical vocabulary for analysing power and aspects of identity, and skills in reading, research and writing.
