Talk 2 - English Renaissance Play: King Lear
as part of Blanc Space Playwright Series IV
The history of theatre goes back a thousand years and has seen many changes since its birth in Greece. The structure of the theatre script, its language, and how it brings across thoughts and emotions have also been through the different eras and changed with the times.
Beginning March 2015, (on every first Wednesday of the month for 12 sessions), Nelson Chia (Artistic Director, Nine Years Theatre) or Kok Heng Leun (Artistic Director, Drama Box) will take you through the years: from the classic Greek tragedies and unmissable Shakespeare and other masters to the more modern postdramatic genres, including a segment on local plays.
Note: Participants are required to read the scripts before attending the talk. Reading materials will be emailed to participants prior to the talk.
Talks will be conducted in Mandarin.
In partnership with: Centre 42
