The course information on this page is being finalised for 2016. Please check again before classes commence.

The topic will examine how and why theatre developed in Western civilization through the ages, with a special focus on Italy. It will follow a "thread" from Greek comedy and tragedy to 20th Century Italian theatre examining, among other things, the role of the actor, author and director. The focus of this topic are 20th Century Italian playwrights Luigi Pirandello and Dario Fo (both Nobel prize-winning writers), and Franca Rame. Selected texts are available in Italian with English translations, and will be read, examined closely, and discussed as required. Lectures will be conducted in English. Please note: classes are held on the Flinders University Campus.
