This module provides an introduction to various styles of
Western and Asian theatre and how they have evolved
over time. Students will be equipped with the foundational
skills to better understand dramatic texts, and the process
of translating a play script to a live performance.
Students will research on the different styles of theatre
(naturalistic and non-naturalistic theatre) and be provided
with an overview of the theatre crafts which includes set
design, costume design and lighting design.
Through practical applications like mask making and roleplaying,
students will better appreciate the relationship
between the text, the characters and the audience.
Students will also be exposed to productions by local and
international companies, and through this experience,
they will develop appreciation and passion for theatre
