Kratochvil, TA10, Section 1, Fall 2009 Page 2 Course Overview Theatre Appreciation gives students the opportunity to study live performance theoretically, historically and practically to enable them to understand and enjoy this unique art form. Students will discover that live performance is a collaborative artistic process that requires the creative collaboration of many artists including the playwright, the director, the actors, the costume designer, the scenic artists, and the lighting and sound designers. Students will learn that a performance is the result of many forces coming together, some tangible, some intangible, but always including the physical presence of the performers and the audience, and the need to communicate a story. Theatre is also a study of the diversity, exploration and expression of the human experience. Students will additionally compare and contrast the uniqueness of live performance with selected film performances.
