Notes? Call them the after-thoughts. Something I noticed, but still do not understand. Like a question. VTheatre is full of them, the questions. I have to remaind myself that I most likely will not see the real Virtual Theatre. Unless I am about to live another 50 years.
Perhaps, I should call "Virtual Theatre Manifesto" -- but I am too old to be a revolutinary.
I don't even call it "visions"!
SummaryFor "theatre" components of Virtual Theatre, go to vtheatre.net!
QuestionsThe problems: 10.000 years from now would they be interested in decades of film history or even centuries of theatre? Would they see the 20th century as a transition to NEW media (medium)?
... Digital is the finale of the long process. The moment we began to "record" mechanically (photo) it was a matter of time for the recording to become digital. Recording vs. Memories (remembering)? Mimesis is outdated concept?

vNotes about Virtual Theatre; this page is about the vTheatre directory and pages.... The logos for vTheatre are rather silly, but I have them stay for now. Virtual Anatoly Y2K @ the End of the real Summer...
I lost "vTheatre" site and I don't know if I have energy to restore it....
Like a dream. Gone.
Like a live show. Memory.
Well, not really.
As long as it digital, it could be saved. Forever.
Are you getting an idea?
You see, on one hand vTheatre can be preserved as DATA, but on another hand it could become alive as soon as other "live" elements become a part of its structure. Something like YOU.
It was the same with books, music, paintings -- it "lives" the moment you see it!
This universal law (Bakhtin called it "Dialogical Nature of Art") became obvious in the phenomena of the Virtual Theatre.
Kant, can help us. You understand that the final product is in us; not on the screen or stage. In our memory, in our mind, our imagination. It's always was VIRTUAL.
* "Theatre of One"? Specator in position of actor -- return to ritual?
"Turner has another word--ceremony--that he uses for ritual-like events designed simply to celebrate the status quo. Ceremony and most rituals serve normative purposes. It actually makes no difference whether the entire community or congregation actually believes. What matters is that they feel compelled to act as if they believe, thus supporting the normative order and maintaining social cohesion. But ritual, which possesses a liminal phase (ceremony does not) contains the potential for disruption of the norm (again, in Turner's view)."
... An important aspect of ritual is that it is supposed to be efficacious. It is supposed to bring about some result which is useful beyond entertainment.
