Drama and Theatre Juxtaposed

Chisom Nneamaka Okafor, Uchenna Eunice Akpamgbo


This paper is on ‘drama and theatre juxtaposed’. Drama is purely performance. This performance happens either on a stage, in an open space or wherever performer choose for it to happen. Theatre provides the stage. These days, people build theatre as it suits them. That is what can be termed the modern theatre. It is more beautiful, with required lights to provide the desired effects. Yet, it does not take away the fact that it all happens for drama to take place. The study aims to point out that drama and theatre are interwoven. Any attempt to separate them makes them appear incomplete as such, loses its relevance. It is discovered that without theatre there will be no drama and vice-versa.
