Important aspects of tragedy are the chorus and the tragic space. In the study of tragedy, the students develop a fundamental understanding of the chorus. They can then transpose that phenomenon to the other styles giving all their work a richer quality. The tragic space, being very particular and a dominant aspect of this style, gives the students an immediate sense of the spatial demands of a particular style. These particular demands are discovered in movement, voice and text.
A story telling adaptation of Gogol’s 1836 hilarious satire on the corruption in the Russian Empire – perfectly actual for today in every country.
