About this course

It is thought that the origins of Greek theater began as religious rites. The earliest plays in ancient Egypt (dating back to around 2000 B.C.) were, in fact, celebrations of Osiris, god of the underworld. And the earliest, Indian, Sanskrit Dramas were said to be based on prayers made by the deity Shiva to his fellow god, Vishnu.

Through the millennia –  from Shakespeare to Sondheim and from Vaudeville to Vimeo – no matter how dramatically its methods and mediums have evolved, it’s kept a kind of mystery and magic all its own.

  • Drama takes us away from our everyday lives.
