Theatre Arts: Initiation to Paris Theatre

 

Professor -- Mme Fabienne Maître

Semester course, offered each semester: 1 unit

 

Students will study plays before and after seeing them performed on stage.  Most of the plays will be contemporary, although some classical plays will be seen, particularly at the Comédie Francaise.  The course will attempt to define the main themes of a play, analyze the characters, and study in detail the key situations.  Students will also devise and write sketches of various scenes and will read and perform them.
