What makes ‘a stage’? Who creates the magic and what are the boundaries?
Site-specific performance challenges actors to break out of their comfort zones, to bring theatre into real life where it can live and breathe without constraints of a traditional ‘stage’. This method is often used by theatrical activists for social change, conflict resolution, and enhancing the dialogue between performers and audience. It brings the audience into the theatre as part of the atmosphere, feeling what the characters feel inside their worlds.
Over the space of six week students will have the chance to create, devise and improvise, working towards an end result of a final performance. Using objects and props, groups will work together using imagination and receptivity to the space around, their surroundings, light and sound. Looking at different contexts and locations students will create a performance in a site outside of the studio. It can be based in a tree, a field, a house, a hotel, a river, a street; a guided tour, this particular style of theatre is called Site-Specific Performance. Looking at the role theatre plays in life, and the potential it possesses for bringing about change. This will be a time to explore different concepts and perspectives, challenging actors and giving them great tools to work with in the future.
