3. Course contents *

This course analyses theatre performance as an independent artistic product. First and foremost, attention is paid to the manner in which theatrical means are applied in the creation of new theatrical configurations: the performance. A series of introductory lectures deals with theoretical and practical problems in performance analysis and explores some of the theatrical devices (space, decor, music, lighting, facial expression, gesticulation, etc.) as semiotic systems. Current theatre productions are analysed by groups of students.
