Theatre and Audience

Theatre and Audience
  • Author : Helen Freshwater
  • Publisher : Macmillan International Higher Education
  • Release : 2009-06-02
  • ISBN : 0230364624
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

What does theatre do for – and to – those who witness, watch, and participate in it? Theatre& Audience provides a provocative overview of the questions raised by theatrical encounters between performers and audiences. Focusing on European and North American theatre and its audiences in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, it explores belief in theatre's potential to influence, impact and transform. Illustrated by examples of performance which have sought to generate active audience involvement – from Brecht's epic theatre to the Blue Man Group – it seeks to unsettle any simple equation between audience participation and empowerment. Foreword by Lois Weaver

The Semiotics of Theatre and Drama

The Semiotics of Theatre and Drama
  • Author : Keir Elam
  • Publisher : Psychology Press
  • Release : 2002
  • ISBN : 9780415280174
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

The late twentieth century saw an explosion of interest in semiotics, the science of the signs and processes by which we communicate. In this study, the first of its kind in English, Keir Elam shows how this new 'science' can provide a radical shift in our understanding of theatrical performance, one of our richest and most complex forms of communication. Elam traces the history of semiotic approaches to performance, from 1930s Prague onwards, and presents a model of theatrical communication. In the course of his study, he touches upon the 'logic' of the drama and the analysis of dramatic discourse. This edition also includes a new post-script by the author, looking at the fate of theatre semiotics since the publication of this book, and a fully updated bibliography. Much praised for its accessibility, The Semiotics of Theatre and Drama remains a 'must-read' text for all those interested in the analysis of theatrical performance.

Theatre in Education emerged in the mid-sixties as a unique hybrid of performance and child-centred learning.

It also takes a snapshot of the TIE being created today, considering all the projects being performed in Wales during a single month. The projects are analysed and every TIE director interviewed about the work and the policies of their companies. It becomes very clear that that the distinction between TIE and Childrens Theatre is being blurred.
