A locus for eccentrics (hopefully)

Tuesday, July 10, 2007

Last night I dreamt a new performance concept. Instead of performing plays on a stage in a theatre, the actors would be on the streets and buildings in a small town.

During the dream, I thought this to be a brilliant and postmodern concept: audience members would feel as though they are part of the action.

Upon waking, I realized the impracticality of it: In order to see the whole show, passersby would have to follow the actors as they moved from location to location, and then you’ve got the whole problem of people calling the police, not knowing the domestic argument they are witnessing is actually a pivotal scene in Act II.
