Theatrical Fields symposium: "Life or Theatre? Events So Far…", Keynote Lecture by Dr Eva Meyer

Description

“Events so far… This phrase promises continuity. In our daily serial lives we expect a recap of previous episodes to help us find our way into the story. Yet in claiming to control a plot and its characters by specifying their time, place and identity, this phrase turns out to be a manifestation of seriality itself: the only thing certain is that the narrative elements will reappear. It is then a matter of the theatricality of their reappearance whether or not they disengage from representation and its narrative, and enter a free and indirect relation between life and theatre.“
