Site-Specific Performance, Paperback / softback Book

Site-Specific Performance Paperback / softback

Description

Site-specific performance - acts of theatre and performative events at landscape locations, in village streets, in urban situations.

In houses, chapels, barns, disused factories, railway stations; on hillsides, in forest clearings, underwater.

At the scale of civil engineering; as intimate as a guided walk. Leading theatre artist and scholar Mike Pearson draws upon thirty years practical experience, proposing original approaches to the creation and study of performance outside the auditorium.

In this book he suggests organizing principles, innovative strategies, methods and exercises for making theatre in a variety of contexts and locations, and through examples, case studies and projects develops distinctive theoretical insights into the relationship of site and performance, scenario and scenography.

This book encourages practical initiatives in the conception, devising and staging of performances, while also recommending effective models for its critical appreciation.
