“The Evolving Resource of Visualisation in
Theatre and Performance Research”
Professor Joanne Tompkins

  *   Friday 23 September
  *   Room 601, Michie Building (#9)
  *   3pm - 4pm

This paper explores a number of visualisation tools at use in the theatre and performance field, including AusStage, IbsenStage, my own visualisation project, Ortelia, and several other tools. More specifically, it outlines the research potential that can emerge from using such tools to augment how we document, analyse, recover, and discuss performance. Digital tools and techniques have become invaluable in my own research on spatiality and location, reformulating research possibilities for me as they facilitate a better understanding of performance, theatrical activity, engagement, collaboration, and the movement of people and productions from one location to another, thus assisting to reinforce the spatial significance to theatre.

Join us for a drink, after the seminar, at St Lucy’s
