Long before the age of film and television, theatre was the primary performance medium through which societies made “pictures” of themselves to understand their place in the cosmos. Explore theatre history and dramatic literature with UI faculty member Kim Marra as she lectures on how theatre – from ancient Egypt to the present – has reflected humanity’s changing perceptions of the environment, human nature and the divine in divergent cultural contexts. Her slide lecture and discussions range from Medieval theatre to women in American theatre.
