Stage Directing Theory
Directing Theory: pre-text, text and super-text = playscript + spectacle + public
Look, this is not a book, but my notes' depository. I wish it could be a book, but so far I store here my thoughts on the nature of spectacle -- and write some commentaries, of course. I made "The Book of Spectator" mini-banner, you see on my pages, for self-discipline; to force myself to go here and keep working on this backstage project.
Oh, Who knows how long will it take...

Herbert Blau, The Audience, John Hopkins U 1990

Public, Audience, Spectator, Crowd, Community

What are the differences?

Raymond Williams "Drama in a Dramatized Society"

Ellias Canetti "Crowds and Power" (see PostAmeriKa files).

"... the audience does not yet exist and has to be conceived." Offending the Audience, 6, Peter Handke

Missing files (somewhere on the disks): spectator's body, spectator as a hypertext, "nospace"...

NB. I am refering to vtheatre directory, but it's a bigger mess than the spectator's files!

Aristotle: Objective Idealism
Last Objective Idealist

Create subdirectories! At VIRTUAL THEATRE? in Spectator2.0?


The idea of Alienation derived from the Russian formalists.... (220)

The technique of Alienation has to do with the method of the actor, but in theory at least, the actor behaves like an audience, so that the audience becomes the actor, though its performance is not completed inside the theatre itself. (Blau 220)
"illusion as value"

...."the audience is what happens." (221)

".... in the United States, where the theatre exists mainly as a secondary form...." (222)


How to lead from the instructional directories to this one? The philosophy of theatre, not just "theory."

... Maybe, the Virtual Theatre metaphysics is about the SPECTATOR. Both directories have the same structure and Spectator is the core of the VTheatre philosophy.

This project is POMO-based, very close to my non-fiction writing. Nietzsche is about the end of modernity, next -- Existantialism and Absurd, the End of Theatre (as we know it).

The Department of Theatre, Film and Television Studies, The University of ales Aberystwyth, announces a new taught MA Scheme: Audience and Reception studies.

This unique course, the first of its kind in the U.K. and indeed much more widely, offers the chance to focus on all the ways in which audiences have een and can be studied. Based within the Department of Theatre, Film and Television Studies, and taught by a team of staff with a strong range of relevant research experiences, the course addresses audiences for new media, theatrical and performative events, alongside the more traditionally-studied audiences for film, television and the like. There is also a chance to extend the study of audiences to other sectors such as the literary. The course combines a deep grounding in academic study of audiences, engagement with commercial and policy research practice and practitioners, and the chance to rehearse and evaluate a range of research skills.
