Information about Theatre & Dance Degrees
Theatre is an old form of art, dating back to antiquity. Based on the area of fiction known as drama, theatre is a complex art that combines different elements that aim to transmit a certain feeling, idea or inner state to the audience. This can be achieved through the text of the theatrical play, music, dance, mimic and various specific techniques.
Dance is an art form intended to orient and produce synchronised body movements and continuous exchange of artistic positions of the human body on a certain rhythm. Dance is strongly linked with music, emotional images and content embodiment through choreographic composition, figures and movements. Dance is used as a method of individual expression as well as a way of social communication.
