Περιγραφή

The change of the millennium witnessed a conspicuous turn to the sonic aspects of theatre and performance – what has been theorized in cultural studies as the new “acoustic turn” (Petra Maria Mayer, 2008) of our century. Whereas the visual stage has been the dominant mode for years in theatre history, the long-neglected acoustic stage and sound of performance have now come vividly to the fore, asking us to “prick up our ears” and listen. This course maps this recent strand in contemporary theatre and performance, starting with its historical origins (the first emerging sound art and happenings / Fluxus events of the early1960s). We will primarily focus (among others) on British playwrights/performance artists/theatre makers, who have turned to audio-based drama and sonic theatre, opening  up theatre art to dimensions of voice, silence, sound and noise hitherto unexplored. We will specifically examine how such practitioners draw on the corporeal, political and cultural economy of sound to negotiate pressing concerns of the post-millennium British (and global) society; i.e. to stage encounters with the fuzzy cityscape or with Nature, to explore polyphony and cultural otherness, to probe into the ideology of the Voice, or to dramatize the effects of technology. A variety of primary sources (performance pieces, scenic installations, digital / intermedial projects, sound texts, etc.) will form our reading and class discussion material.
