2. Understanding Contexts : It is the intent of this course to develop an understanding of how theatre always creates both an immediate and a studied response in an audience, by functioning as both a visual and an aural medium. Students are expected to demonstrate an ability to analyze both the form and the content of theatre. 3. Engaging Other Learners : Students will engage in group work for the purposes of devising theatre. Each student is expected to contribute to the final group project and the group is expected to share research, work and rehearsal under a cooperative system. 4. Reflecting and Acting : Each aspect of the theatre needs to be connected to every other aspect, as the making and experiencing of theatre is a complex human endeavor. It is also critical that students reflect on how theatre addresses issues relative to our collective and individual lives. Students are also expected to articulate ways in which the theatre can help us decide on plans of action as citizens with responsibilities.
