- to analyse, interpret and give an account of the complexity of a certain public space by investigating and formulating its principles theoretically and via interpretation
- to analyse and give an account of how the political, social and economic power structures in society cooperate with each other in public space
- to analyse, interpret and give an account of the complexity of a certain public space by practising and investigating the artist’s and art’s roles in a way that is specific to the new space and environment
- to give an account of current and historic theoretical development, research and discussion concerning dramatic performance and interpretation in general and to relate your own and others’ dramatic practice and works in a critical way to such a context
- to give an account of various ways of understanding and describing the creation and interpretation of meaning in relation to dramatic performance and interpretation and also to apply these methods of approach to your own and others’ works
