This module involves students in dramaturgical analysis of public space. The students will be introduced to the dramaturgy of the street. This expanded view of dramaturgy involves an interdisciplinary approach, drawing on architectural, political, social, geographical and psychoanalytical frameworks in order to understand the social, political and aesthetic implications of the various ways in which public space is constructed, occupied, transgressed and celebrated, both in its ‘everyday’ uses and its use as a performance arena. The module will facilitate students’ critical ability both in their academic writing and live debate. Students will apply these ideas to analyses of examples of performance taking place in public space, or which use public spaces as a significant resource. They will be encouraged to consider ways in which such analyses might provoke and have provoked new approaches to street arts.
