#AudienceSoho round-up: Days 2 & 3Fri 9 December 2011
7th December #AudienceSoho discussion Q: – can audience reaction be easily manipulated/manufactured? Pack mentality? Or in-the-moment real emotion? #AudienceSoho
Easier to manipulate if the audience is the subject. Otherwise evoking a desired emotional reaction from a crowd is good theatre
It’s more of social experiment rather than theatre. Talking on a stage doesn’t equal performance or ‘theatre’ it needs focus.
I mean if the sole purpose of the ‘performance’ is to get a specific reaction rather than present & get ideas flowing.
I don’t view ‘Audience’ as a piece of theatre per se- it’s more suitable for a Psychology class in my view.
8th December #AudienceSoho discussion Q:
-…both us as part of audience & us ‘standing up’ in front of an audience. Computer screen is 4th wall of sorts… but an interactive one?
…..those of us who love the theatre feel we are getting the full ‘theatrical experience’ with the online element too! :)
it certainly gives a different perspective as an audience member…..
@jkmacam #Audience I wanted to walk out but I didn’t. I think I made their point.
