SALON SERIES TALK #2 – MARCH 3 @ 5:30PM – CRItical MEdia LAB

COLLABORATING WITH AUDIENCES: A CONSIDERATION OF THE CHALLENGES – PHYSICAL, SENSUAL, ETHICAL, AND PERCEPTUAL – POSED TO AUDIENCES BY SITE-SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE AND DESIGN

Site-specific performance demands a lot of an audience, and in so doing it revitalizes theatre. Using examples of performances I have created with Knowhere Productions (www.knowhereproductions.ca) in Saskatchewan, this presentation will offer a perspective on how site-specific practices of animation and design challenge a spectator’s perception and understanding of a work, and in so doing ignite certain qualities of theatre as a communal, cultural practice that have long been dormant on the medium’s more conventional stages.
