In this unit you will use technologies as a starting place for devising performance. The unit looks at how different technologies and innovations, digital and non-digital, operate in past and contemporary theatre as expressive tools that shape and determine different roles and bodily techniques of the performer, forms of audience experience and interaction and stages and arenas of performance. Students will develop an understanding of and language for how technologies such as those of sound, light and screen and networked, online, extended reality, immersive, mobile and located tools, devices and environments shape and enable certain forms of theatrical expression and experience. In the unit students will have the opportunity to experiment with a given technology or set of technologies as a starting point to devise a performance prototype that demonstrates the emergent creative direction of their application.
