From the 1870s until the 1960s, the theatre underwent a series of radical transformations as artists sought new forms for a rapidly changing world. This course explores the key theatrical movements of this period, including Realism, Naturalism, Symbolism, Epic Theatre, Theatre of Cruelty, and Absurdism. It compares the theories behind them to the plays, stagecraft, and performance techniques they produced, and considers their legacy for the contemporary stage.
