On Theatricality and the Space Between: Relationships and the Theatre(s) of Learning Disability

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

With reference to a practice-led research process and the ensuing devised
performance-in-progress of Black/White, this paper draws on conversations between the director, actors and audience members. The key focus will be an exploration of Féral’s claim that theatricality is a dynamic of perception, creating a special condition theatricality between the spectator and the one looked at (the actor) (Féral, 1998: 358). Further the paper will explore how this is then complicated by learning disability.
