It is strongly suggested that students attempt this course after completing THE1001 and THE1002.
The course commences with an historical overview of Australian theatre and concludes at the beginning of the 21st century with an exploration of contemporary theatre. Throughout the course, students will study some of the social, political, economic and artistic elements and key artists and companies that have shaped Australian theatre. The course attempts to represent a diversity of "voices" in Australian theatre, and will draw upon plays, articles and other secondary materials to explore various relevant socio-political and economic issues as they relate to identification.
