Intermediality in Theatre and Performance
The Intermediality in Theatre and Performance Working Group examines the interrelationships of theatre with other media as well as combinations of different media in performance. It looks at theories and conceptualizations of media in live performance, historical developments and transformations of media, and contemporary manifestations of intermediality. The group members work in diverse areas and within different methodologies but share a focus on the self-reflexivity of media, an interest in media applications and functions in culture and society, as well as an understanding of theatre practice as an object and method of research.
