This practice-based module explores the traditions and practices of verbatim, testimonial, documentary and tribunal forms of theatre. Raising complex issues such as what it means to `have a voice┬┐ in theatre, notions of authenticity and realness, and of representation and rights, it explores the shaping and framing of material from various sources, including interviews, media, archives and documents. Students will explore the role of the practitioner, make your own piece of theatre, and give reflective responses to the work of others.
