You'll also enhance your critical understanding of the rhetorical and performative aspects of literary texts by developing your awareness of performance practices
You'll have the chance to examine Western and non-Western theatre
The degree includes some practical experience with producing theatre but is primarily a text-based course designed to develop your understanding of performance studies rather than your creative practice
