THTR21001 Storytelling as Dramaturgy

Course details

Students will explore the basis for understanding how storytelling in musical theatre is articulated through the principles of dramaturgy. Fundamental proposition of deriving and establishing `conflict┐ as the progenitorial basis for story arc is the starting point for further investigations into lead and supporting character creation, the trick of setting up `permissions┐; the use and development of subsidiary themes, the importance of milieu; the use of framing devices such as the `ticking┐ clock and the overarching implication of the three-act structure as formal design.

Students will be required to attend workshops in order to complete the requirements of the course.
