Drama


It’s UQ Drama: experiencing, examining, creating theatre

UQ Drama encourages students to examine, experience, and create theatre in a program that offers one of the most comprehensive canonical curriculums in Australia. By studying theatre history, theory and practice at UQ, you will be challenged to think about what constitutes performance on the stage, on the page and in everyday life. You will develop an understanding of the theatrical and literary aspects of drama, from ancient Greek classics and medieval theatre to the most recent plays from around the world. You’ll critique professional performances, review plays, compare the classics with contemporary scripts, and craft your career on a broad base of knowledge and experience. You’ll also work with leading local, national and international practitioners to develop work in our state-of -the art studio facility. As you progress through your major, you’ll also get to write, perform in, and direct plays for assessment.
