Lecture summary

In "the world, both one stage, man and woman are all nothing but hen (they do not knit) ku actor" (Shakespeare)
European people of the renaissance period thought that the working of the world was one big play. On the other hand, from the times of ancient Greece, drama was mirror to project figure of social way and human beings who lived there on. In other words, in play, the world is clogged up. We want to tell world fun of such a drama and infinite expanse to students by all means. This lecture came out of such hot thought of several foreign language department teachers. By lecture, we learn about drama of various local various times of the world from ancient Greece to modern Japan. Furthermore, we taste feeling of member of a theatrical company in two times of workshops a little bit. And we have you watch the real stage in theater out of classroom. We are going to arrange opportunity of special lecture having well-known theatricalist come (we submit the experience as "theatergoing report"). We concentrated invention for program to have attendance student know charm of drama from different angles as possible in this way.
We want to say with wonderful "guide" that all students who are interested in drama to drama geek belonging to theatrical company from person who has not mentioned drama at all can enjoy until now. Therefore we are full of curiosity and expect attendance of motivated intellectual high-level everybody.
