Theatre studies refer to the discipline which focuses on the analysis of theatrical performances in relation to their literary, psychological sociological, historical and psycho-biological contexts. This discipline also concentrates on the study of theatrical aesthetics and semiotics.
Currently, theatre studies are becoming always more popular as they permit people to understand the nature of the performance, access tools to create theatre and look at the performance in a critical and analytical way.
Theatrical studies focus on different times and cultures, ranging from the Shakespeare's plays to the Performance art.
As well as this, this discipline cover different performance art areas including, performance techniques, analysis and interpretation of plays, methodologies of directing, the history of the theatre, performance analysis and critical theories, theatre technology and design, and playwriting and creation of new performance works.
Furthermore, theatrical studies are considered a complex discipline as it is a mix of practical and theoretical studies as the theatre would not exist only by studying or experiencing it.
