Performer Training and Technology : Preparing Our Selves PDF
Part of the Perspectives on Performer Training series
Performer Training and Technology employs philosophical approaches to technology, including postphenomenology and Heideggerâ€™s thinking, to examine the way technology manifests, influences and becomes used in performer training discourse and practice.
The book offers in-depth discussions of present and past performer training practices through a lens that has never been applied before; considers the employment of key digital artefacts; and develops a series of analytical tools that can be useful in scholarly and practical explorations. An array of intriguing subjects are covered including the role of electric lights in Stanislavskyâ€™s work on concentration; the use of handheld tools, such as sticks in Zarrilliâ€™s psychophysical training and Meyerholdâ€™s Biomechanics; the emergence of new forms of training in relation to motion capture technology; and the way the mobile phone complicates notions and practices of attention in learning and training contexts.
This book is of vital relevance to performer training scholars and practitioners; theatre, performance, and dance scholars and students; and especially those interested in philosophies of technology.
