An Alternative History of Theatre
A cycle of lectures hosted jointly with Theatre magazine. The lectures illuminate an alternative history of theatre, a research project that began in the magazine's thirty-third issue.
Site-specific: Witness to Birth
It wasn't so long ago that theatre managed to win back its freedom from the limits of the stage-box; it happened in the era of the performative coup. The American avant-garde gave site-specific theatre a rebirth not only in general stage practice, but also in theoretical work. This lecture will discuss how and why theatre arose and developed in the United States outside the common theatrical space, and what that led to.
