Unit 3 presentation

  1. 1. 1. Role of the object as a artefact in theatre Semiotics can be defined as a science dedicated to the study of the production of meaning in society. As such it is equally concerned with processes of signification and with those of communication, i.e., the means whereby meaning are both generated and exchanged. Its objects are thus at once the different sign- systems and codes at work in society and the actual messages and texts produced thereby (Elam, 1980) from the performance “Lear Rehearsing Death” by Georg Genoux in the Meyerhold
  2. 2. 2. The methods of presenting an object to the audience - camera macro view point (cinematic approach to present objects) - integrating the audience into the performance space (environmental seating) - detaching the objects as a separate story-teller from the performer - creating a performance in museum/ exhibit space (using the context) - creating a mocumentary portrait of a personage in fiction text by using artefacts - creating performance based on the physical qualities of objects (sound, physics, texture) An image from Fraulein Julie by Katie Mitchell at the Schaubeuhne Theatre
  3. 3. 3. Combining the museum and theatrical audience object exploration experience MUSEUM - self directed process of exploration - self created temp of absorbing information - opportunities of using using tactile sensors - introduction to objects as documents (education) THEATRE - seeing the object “living” through the interaction with the performer - creating a context for the object through storytelling the National Railway Museum and York Theatre Royal
