Intermedial Theatre: Principles and Practice
This book aims to make complex ideas accessible. It offers a rigorous, yet readable, insight into key aspects of intermedial theatre principles and practices as they manifest themselves here and now in the first quarter of the 21st century, infused as it is with digital media and the new hybrid experiences this creates. Each chapter author addresses sophisticated ideas in relation to intermediality, but infused with their own experiences of making and spectating, addressing the reader directly throughout. Themes, practices and even certain productions (notably Complicite’s The Encounter) are revisited by different authors but with a new perspective each time, dependant on the focus of the chapter. The approachable analytical style is illuminated and grounded with a wide range of clear practitioner examples, selected by the chapter authors or written about by theatre-makers themselves in the final chapter. Every chapter concludes with a Practical Ideas section written by each author, offering the reader some thoughts on how to translate the concepts within the text into theatre practice.
