Re-framing the theatrical
interdisciplinary landscapes for performance
Alison Oddey

Published 2007 by Palgrave Macmillan in Basingstoke [England], New York .
Written in English.

About the Book

Alison Oddey takes us on a spectator's journey, engaging with art forms that cross boundaries of categorisation. She examines how these cross-art forms provoke a solo spectator-protagonist, and how the work becomes meditative and spiritual. In questioning the role of the spectator and the director, Oddey considers how a re-thinking and reclaiming of physical and artistic forms has contributed to a new kind of making theatre-art, searching for space and contemplation in a hectic twenty-first-century landscape. Highlighting the work of director Deborah Warner and of artists Heather Ackroyd, Dan Harvey and Graeme Miller, Oddey provocatively demonstrates the spectator as centre of the artistic experience, in an exciting and innovative analysis of the many changes taking place in contemporary performance.
