Immersive theatres : intimacy and immediacy in contemporary performance

Machon, J.(Edited by)
See all formats and editions

This comprehensive text is the first survey to explore the theory, history and practice of immersive theatre.

Charting the rise of the immersive theatre phenomenon, Josephine Machon shares her wealth of expertise in the field of contemporary performance, inviting the reader to immerse themselves within this abundantly illustrated text.

The first section of the book introduces concepts of immersion, situating them within a historical context and establishing a clear critical vocabulary for discussion.

The second section then presents contributions from a wealth of immersive artists. Assuming no prior knowledge with its critical commentary, this is a rich resource for lecturers and students at all levels and internationally, including undergraduates and post-graduates, as well as practitioners and researchers of contemporary performance.

This would also be an ideal text for general enthusiasts and readers with an interest in immersive theatre.
