Audience Participation in Theatre PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Audience Participation in Theatre free pdf The popularity of participatory work with audiences is greater than ever, but the invitation to participate is rarely given attention as a feature of performance, or an important element of practice in its own right. This book presents a theory of audience participation in the theatre, based on the importance of the moment of invitation and how an event changes character when such an invitation is made. The materials from which theatre performance is made expand to include the audience participant's body and social being, with the participant's prior experience and expectations, and their embodied, affective response to the performance becoming of vital importance. Attending to this expanded set of performance media allows us to begin to articulate the aesthetics of participation, and thereafter to consider the ethics and politics of participation more precisely. This book offers a new theory of audience participation and taps into the growth of immersive (or participatory) performance and Applied Theatre. Discussing the work of companies such as Punchdrunk, Shunt and De La Guarda, this book will be of use to students and teachers of performance, theatre practitioners and anyone interested in exploring immersive performance.
