Module presented in Afrikaans Module presented online
Purpose: The purpose of this module is to sensitise students about the influences drama and society has on each other. Using this knowledge, they will be able to take part in discussions on the similarities and differences between plays originating from Africa and Europe, focusing on dramas in Afrikaans and Dutch. The module will equip them to motivate their own interpretations of these plays, and to explain the influence that canonised Afrikaans and Dutch plays have on theatre systems. Bearing in mind that persons and groups create plays to be performed, students that successfully complete the module will be able to motivate their ideas concerning periods in the history of Afrikaans drama.
