Learning outcomes and objectives
By the end of the module, you should have:
• gained insight into London’s history as a theatrical city at seminal moments in its development.
• built a deeper awareness and understanding of the key concepts (actor, audience and architecture) in the study and examination of theatre and performance and understanding.
• improved your techniques in performance and text analysis, engagement with criticism, historical/context analysis, all within the interdisciplinary framework of theatre history, performance studies and literary studies.
• developed the ability to apply theory about theatre to the analysis of specific performances both in a historical context but also in terms of personal experience of performance.
• built a deeper awareness and understanding of key current debates around theatre making in London.
Many of our students get credit for the summer modules taken at King’s. You should approach your home university before applying as it is up to them to apply the credit to your degree programme. We would recommend a three week module would be equivalent to 3-4 US credits or 7.5 ECTS.
