Nighttown

During the academic year 2016-2017, Emmet has focused on the relation between theatre and video-recording equipment. Indeed, acting in the theatre cannot be thought of independently from its reception by an audience. What happens to the craft of acting once it is decentred by the lens of a camera? How does the theatrical interaction operate once representation is multiplied by lightweight, moving technology (i.e. smartphones, live broadcast, etc…)? Investigating issues related to gaze and address in the performer’s craft while remaining sensitive to the fragmentation of the body that the frame operates as well as the new possibilities of nuances that the zoom offers, this year’s workshop explored the perilous chapter 15 of James Joyce’s Ulysses. The 2016 autumn semester serving as an experimental terrain in view of the collective creation of the 2017 spring semester at the Studio André Steiger of La Comédie de Genève.
