Description

This course examines French theatre. It is offered in Spring & Summer Session, with two weeks of classes in Saskatoon and two weeks of study in Paris. The classes will provide a general, century-by-century introduction to the evolution of theatre (theatrical life and aesthetics) through the analysis of excerpts from the major works of the French repertoire. In Paris, two plays will be studied, chosen from among the offerings at France?s two main theatres: La Comédie-Française (1680) and l?Odéon (1782). An exclusive backstage tour of the theatres, and a discussion of their histories, will also be included. Students will also be privileged to spend an afternoon at Le Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris, France?s premiere drama school, to witness some of their workshops. This class will also include lectures and discussions with some of France?s most famous stage directors and theatre specialists.
