A Theatre Without Spectators
July 23, 2015
“We therefore need a different theatre, a theatre without spectators: not a theatre played out in front of empty seats, but a theatre where the passive optical relationship implied by the very term is subjected to a different relationship – that implied by another word, one which refers to what is produced on the stage: drama.”
– from Jacques Rancière, The Emancipated Spectator
Danspace Project executive director Judy Hussie-Taylor took a minute out of her busy teaching schedule last week at Wesleyan University’s Institute for Curatorial Practice in Performance to photograph the windows of Main Street in Middletown, CT.
