The intent of the course is to trace the development of performance spaces and theatrical structures of the Western Theatre. These structures will be viewed as tools to assist theatre artists in the creation of theatrical events. We will be concerned with architecture and performance equipment as well as the reasons for the various configurations of the spaces. The course will follow the evolution of theatre building from its beginnings in 6th Century BCE Athens to contemporary play/opera houses.
