Immersive theatre and the anxiety of choice

Immersive theatre and the anxiety of choice | Theatre | Scoop.it
Yes, you might discover a secret orgy in a hidden room or go on a desperate quest for a missing ring, but at heart, immersive theatre is about turning the traditional power dynamics of actors and audience on their head.

Frankenstein: A Modern Myth. Showing on Channel 4 Oct 31st

Frankenstein: A Modern Myth. Showing on Channel 4 Oct 31st | Theatre | Scoop.it

'From Boris Karloff to Mel Brooks, Frankenstein has fired the imagination of generations of artists who have created their own interpretation of this Gothic masterpiece.

 

'Written by a 19-year-old girl nearly 200 years ago, this was the first and greatest myth of the modern scientific age.

 

'Mary Shelley began writing her novel in Geneva, where she went to escape the judgmental gaze of British society with her lover Percy Shelley (a married man), her half-sister Clare and Clare's lover, the notorious poet Lord Byron.

 

'Living a life of subversive glamour, they were the rock stars of the 1800s.

 

'Shut up indoors during the wettest summer on record, Lord Byron suggested they each try to write a ghost story. Unable to begin, Mary panicked at first, but then in a waking dream she had the vision for her novel.

 

'Frankenstein - published anonymously in 1818 when she was just 21 - has gone on to inspire its own popular genre of horror movies, punk rock and theatre productions.

 

'Frankenstein: A Modern Myth looks at some of these depictions, including Danny Boyle's sell-out hit at the National Theatre.

The film has exclusive access to rehearsals and interviews with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller - who alternate the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature - and with Danny Boyle.

 

'In a world preoccupied with debates about man overreaching himself, the perils of 'playing God' that animate Shelley's shocking ethical parable continue to keep the myth of Frankenstein alive today.'

NOTES ON AN ART DOMAIN (by Tim Griffin)

NOTES ON AN ART DOMAIN (by Tim Griffin) | Theatre | Scoop.it

It was with no small amount of surprise, when starting a new job last year as executive director of The Kitchen in New York, that I found my first order of business to be attending a conference required of hundreds of nonprofit institutions, from modern dance companies to major opera houses, in addition to alternative arts spaces such as my own – all of whom had recently accepted major grants from Bloomberg Philanthropies for the enhancement of cultural organizations’ usage of contemporary technologies and, more specifically, social media. [1] Not that I felt artistic institutions harbor no need for consultation when seeking to grasp the cultural influence and implications of changes in the digital field. Quite the contrary
