Dhianita Kusuma Pertiwi

Abstract


Compare to the other literature forms, the development of drama in terms of analysis and work in Indonesia is both insufficiently and not widely encouraged. The history of modern drama in Indonesia can be traced back to Dutch colonialism period in which Western drama introduced to Indonesian people, while traditional performing arts has been developed far before the nation‘s independence. Unfortunately, the long tradition of Indonesian drama is not enough to encourage its development as one of the branches of literature, especially in the aspect of play script writing production. A solution is needed to boost the interest in play script writing especially among younger generation, especially university students. This study combines library-based research on related literature to gain adequate textual information on history and development of drama in Indonesia and case study on English-language theater club in State University of Malang, Maestro English Theater. Research findings will show that university-based theater club may become a media to develop Indonesian drama and encourage play script writing among university students of this country. This study can be used as a reference for the development of Indonesian literature, especially drama, and also for the establishment of theater club as a positive activity for learners.
