The Sensible Stage: Staging and the Moving Image

Synopsis:

A collection of newly commissioned texts that explore the moving image in relation to performance, time and the event.*

The Sensible Stage provides a series of individual proposals and speculations on the intersections of what might be termed 'live-ness' in moving image and performance art practices today.

Unfolding around the concept of 'staging', this book discusses the use of performance and theatre strategies in contemporary art as a means to question the boundaries of stage and screen.

Containing a mixture of discursive, theoretical and creative texts,The Sensible Stage includes monographs on the work of Yael Davids, Clare Gasson, Jimmy Robert, and Cara Tolmie, and a new text-piece by Beatrice Gibson.

Furthermore it contains new essays by Vanessa Desclaux, Pil and Galia Kollectiv, Dominic Andrew Paterson, Lucy Reynolds, and Ian White, plus a conversation between Alain Badiou and Elie During on theatre.

 

* Badiou & During reprinted from Theatre Without Theatre, 2007 (Barcelona: MACBA)
