FAGS3016 Comparative Studies in Acting (3 units)
The course provides students with an opportunity to explore, in depth, the interpretation and representation of some classical works in acting from different cultures.
It will also analyse and compare the various ways of turning the texts into performances. Students will learn and compare how cultures or social settings would shape a performance after surveying a rich variety of plays, films, videos and other media adaptations of the texts, from the perspectives of acting and directing.
Class discussion and assignments will enable students to practice the approach of comparative studies and case studies and understand the cultural and social influences involved.
