Contemporary Theatre covers a wide range of topics in the discipline of Theatre Arts. Students practice basic acting exercises in order to learn the proper use of the body and voice when developing a role. They model these techniques by both composing and performing short dialogues and scenes.  Further studies will reflect the work of leading theorists and theatre practitioners as well as theatre from around the world. These are introductory and inform the interpretation of text and direction.
