Potentials of Spaces by Alison Oddey

Book Description

This book will be used by students of directing, acting, design, theatre studies, performance and dance studies, installation art and visual design for performative forms. The breadth of international work covered in these essays is exciting and informative. A classic text on the burgeoning fields of scenography and performance and multimedia technologies. This book covers scenography and performance in opera, theatre, live art and site specific works. It looks at the movements of theatre making and the development of experimental processes for the theatre and creative arts. The essential questions that this exciting book addresses are: What are the creative partnerships for performance making? What kinds of spaces are used? What are the potentials of technologies for performance? How do practitioners write and rehearse performance? This book is the first of its kind that addresses the relationships between scenography and performance as a part of the visual culture, by developing the discourse between academics and practitioners.

Modes of Spectating by Alison Oddey Modes of Spectating, Paperback (March 2009)

Explores the visual landscapes which spectators encounter, and how they perceive what they view. This book questions the effect of different mediums on the spectator and asks not only how we view, but also how what we view determines what artists create. It is suitable for various disciplines of media and art.

Re-framing the Theatrical by Alison Oddey Re-framing the Theatrical, Hardback (April 2007)

Oddey questions the role of the spectator and director, and the nature of art works and performance. She provocatively demonstrates the spectator as centre of the artistic experience, a new kind of making theatre-art, revealing its spirit and nature; searching for space and contemplation in a hectic twenty-first century landscape.

A selection of interviews with prominent female actresses, including Fiona Shaw, Alison Steadman, Dawn French, Julie Walters and Miranda Richardson, among many others. This new editon will include three new interviews and a new Preface to situate the collection in the twenty-first century.
