Theatre? "I can take any empty space and call it a bare stage. A man walks across this empty space whilst somebody else is watching him, and this is all I need for an act of theatre to be engaged." [Peter Brook, 1968, 9]

Also, it will get confusing first, because I intend to bring in the "wrong" subjects. Never mind, the postmoderm or the Web with its green "history" -- I want to bring in the theology and even my ideas of resurrection....

I still do not put it right: show = spectator. The good show, I mean.
Theatre of OneAll right, I don't know what I am doing!
I kept writing my metatexts for many years (POV, Self and so on) and at the same time my notes on Web. Next -- Virtual Theatre files (and productions). And this directory as well without realizing that they all are CONNECTED!
I talked in advanced classes about POMO (postmodernism) and never had I chance to stop and look at the big picture, to see what this Anatoly is doing!
Well, now I have to link them and find the logic of organization of this super-project. And the form! Yes, yes, because it has to have the hyperdrama organization. And the tone? The style...
I consider this subject as the most important for understanding of theatre...
Nevertheless, I have no time to work on this book!
Maybe, it will grow from the Theory pages... by itself.
Any show doesn't exist outside of you, spectator!

Okay, as you can see I want to give a new life to my Theatre Theory pages, using the Plato' style dialogues (and pix). In short, I remaned the three parts of the THR directory into Three Acts! I casted my favorites (on the right) into this show. So, instead of files (what an ugly KGB name!) we will have scenes! What else? Of course, it's a comedy. Yes, because of the happy end. There are some characters I haven't inroduce yet, some are in other books (Stanislavsky, Meyerhold, Chekhov), but I still have to find the forms of the conflict between Artists and Thinkers (Plato)... That's where the "Plato Academy Girls" come in! I still don't know who are the good guys -- artists or philisophers (both are bad). But the play is there!
No, seriously! I try to figure out some hierarchy in my webpages: looks like the Theory Theory is after The Book of Spectator. Whatever I can't explain in one, would go to the next level of theory. Yes, where the girls are. Listen, I needed some visual finale for the "files" -- it's theatre after all!
One more thing -- I don't want to call them (on the right) "characters": they are my "heroes"!
