Course objectives
The series of screenings of various theatre-related documentaries and productions want to introduce the work of Czech and international theatre-makers and (their) practice to students. Dramatic authors, works and directors, that are described and taught in classes, often remain only a name, an abstract term. The subject aims to encourage students’ interest to encounter actual theatrical works and productions, to connect theoretical knowledge with one’s own reception and experience, and to eventually cultivate the ability to state one’s opinion and discuss it on an academic level.
Learning outcomes
By the end of the course the students will be able to:

- formulate their opinion and argue for it in a discussion;
- apply theoretical knowledge on their own spectator experience;
- confront theoretical knowledge with practical theatre;
- think about theatre performance in a broader cultural and socio-political context.
