Panel: “Drama and Society”

Drama has long served as a communal mirror to society, reflecting its habits, aesthetics, politics and cultural norms. This panel seeks to explore the ways in which drama reveals its intricate relationship to society; how does drama (through both text and performance) support, embody and critique the world in which it was created?
