In this international course, we explore the structure of drama: how storytellers share their stories and what the stories reveal about these cultures. To examine the structure of drama, we read dramatic texts from Asia, Africa, and Europe and evaluate how this dramatic literature speaks to the historical, culture, and sociopolitical contexts. These texts reveal how theatre artists in Japan, China, India, South Africa, Ghana, Europe, and the United States express their culture through their national dramas. By analyzing artistic themes in the context of the time and place, we develop appreciation for personal and societal identity among theatrical traditions by reflecting on, sharing, interpreting, and writing about drama worldwide.
