Module 3 The Critic Lecture We are exploring theatre as an art form. As with all art, it may or may not have value in today’s society. Theatre can also be seen as pure entertainment. Drama is infused with life. Whether on a stage or in a celebrity courtroom battle, drama takes place continually. Think about a day at work, what conflicts were present, how were they played out, was the conflict resolved and how was the resolution received? We are also the players in this drama. Who tends to be the director or who plays the character? An appreciation of theatre allows one to begin to investigate not only the art form as a whole but their situation as a part of understanding their role in society. Think about a movie, a song, or a story that affected you. Why did it provoke you – did it spell out exactly how you felt about a loved one, did it bring back a memory, or does it express how you feel about yourself? Try to imagine life without the arts: music, dance, TV, film, painting, etc. What effect would their absence have on your life?
