Prepare for a mess [references to pomo and theology and God knows what else?] -- I have go go back to my old files (hard copies)....
Featured Pages: Virtual Theatre -- I suspect that vTheatre and The Book of Spectator are the same book, but two different perspectives on the subject.
I don't know what I will do with those spectator's pages! They are somehow between my theory directory and research (virtual theatre). The idea of spectator is the central point, but I'm afraid that, even if I will find time to work on the manuscript, this is more of "theory" or "metaphysics of theatre." "Theory" I understand loosely, according my posrtmodernism interests and I could say the same about the traditional notion of "philosophy" (Nevertheless, I should try to keep the references to the Virilio's theory of accident, Foucault's principles of authorship or "The Logic of Practice" by Pierre Bourdieu). Victor Turner and Richard Schechner prepared the ground for a different view of the theatre phenomena and the field of performance studies gives us a chance to review the fundamentals of dramatic.
HamletDreams 2001: mindscape
SummaryOnly now I began to use SPECTATOR pages for my classes, as a starting point (especially for the low division -- THR200X Aesthetics).
[I have to find the way to move some of the Spectator pages intro Theatre Theory directory]
NotesFind the ways to connect those three directories: Spectator, Virtual Theatre and Theatre Theory. There must some hierarchy. How to direct to it the traditional directories (Acting, Directing, Drama, Aesthetics)? So the reader could see the philosophy behind it.
[I don't see the structure of this book.]
MONTAGEYou probably saw the logo of the Book of Spectator on many of my pages (right) and the simple reason why it's everywhere, because analysis of the each and all subjects in theatre should spring from the phenomena of the Seeing.... In Film, too. Especially, in film.
VIRTUAL THEATRE: SPECTATOR'S THEORY"An audience without a history is not an audience." Herbert Blau
Virtual Theatre places the spectator in the center of any action. Virtual Theatre give you the control of action. Spectator is the next revolution after the Director's Theatre a century ago. Virtual Theatre is the Postmodern Theatre, Theatre of One!It's a theory project, friends.
Where are we at the moment?
This is another "online" project. I transfer my hard drive files to the web -- and edit them at the same time.
I write online.
I am a web-writer.
I write and publish everything at the same time. To same the time for you, reader.
To save money for the publishing houses.
Hey, this is Theatre, it has to live!
I am a performer! Am I?
I know that you are not a reader, you are ... you guess, the Spectator!
What do you think this Internet and Web are about?
The ultimate SPECTATORSHIP!
[from the old notes]
AUDIENCE: BETWEEN ONE AND MANY
1. Spectator (Artist and Medium)
2. Audience = Stage + Public
3. Public: product of the audience.
4. Model Spectator: Mr. Director
5. Medium: the site of the imaginary is the ego.
6. Double Negation: play (illusion of fiction)
7. Horizontal and Vertical Spectator
8. Naive and Competent Spectator
9. Dramatic, Theatre, Performance Texts
10. Action, drama, body of emotions
I do not teach such a class (the closest is 200X Aesthetics, the basics). Maybe this is a scholary project and I don't like it. (I wouldn't mind to write it in style of Nietzsche).
