What is the relationship between performance and place? This seminar investigates how place matters in performance, and how performance engages the environments in which it takes place. You will explore a range of issues related to performance space, including: theatre buildings and architecture, site-specific or environmental performance, the role of theatre sites within urban environments, and the representation of place in plays. You will also be introduced to current critical debates about theatre and place, and consider how analysing places of performance might prompt important questions about theatrical geography, politics and history.
