Theatre and Film / Cinema and Performance Reading Group
For decades the contentious, yet at times symbiotic, relationship between theatre and cinema has fascinated both scholars and artists. As barriers between disciplines erode to allow for scholarly exploration, the flexible and porous border that separates theatre and film has emerged as an intriguing location for innovative research. By exploring the dynamics of theatre and cinema production, research, history, theory, and pedagogy, the scholar can develop approaches to analysis that move beyond the paradigm of trans-medium adaptation. With such research and analysis, we can ask: How do theatre and film inform one another? How can theoretical issues from one field be applied to the other? How do pedagogues approach the disciplines when both are presented in coursework?
Participants should contact the facilitator by May 31st.
