Courses: Ancient Drama/Performance Crit (LATNB672001)

Spring 2010

Class Number: 1470
Course description: This course is designed as a survey of current
trends in performance analysis of ancient drama, offering a selection
of material evidence, ancient testimonies, and contemporary studies
that addresses diverse theatrical issues such as stage directions,
spatial definition, and masks. We examine various methodological
approaches to interpreting ancient performance, and test the
usefulness of these approaches on a number of plays from the Greek and
Roman theater. Works of the Greek playwrights will be read in
translation; a play each by Plautus, Terence and Seneca will be read
in Latin.
