Title: How does theatre think through incorporating media

This book chapter investigates the multifarious ways that film, video and digital projections are used in theatrical stage productions, and the vast range of ideas, meanings and effects they create. Case studies of practitioners including Katie Mitchell, Robert Lepage, the Wooster Group and The Builders Association illustrate the myriad ways in which theatre thinks through, investigates and experiments with the potent conjunction of live performance and recorded media. It proposes a taxonomy of the five most impactful types of effect that theatre directors elicit and employ, from ‘the synesthetic pleasure principle’ and explorations of ‘ghosts and doubles’ to ‘metamorphosing time and space’.
