Theatre Studies

Study Theatre

The main object of study within Theatre Studies is the theatrical event. Theatre is viewed as an art form and as social behavior, within style, history and culture politics, as well as communication between actor and spectator. We include theatrical forms such as dance, opera, mime and non-Western theatre and since 1988 we have had a master's programme with a special focus on dance.
