Who is this class for: There are no prerequisites for this course. That said, an interest in common media depictions of globalization will help you understand the main arguments more quickly. Relatedly, reading and writing comfortably in English at the undergraduate college level will enable your more active engagement in course discussion forums and peer assessment exercises. A basic understanding of theatre history, especially in the 20th century, would be advantageous.

great course, learned a lot from this simple course.

covered a lot of interesting ideas about theatre

Enjoyable course. Thanks. I learned a lot about my own community.

Very interesting course that makes someone to wide his mind and understand that art can not evolve without technology or economy. Also it becomes quite clear that art is not one persons or countrys privilege, but of the whole world and everyone can help theatre to evolve.
