[ISEA2000] Tutorial: Christine Bentley, Louise Taube & Sasha Stella – MULTIMEDIA PERFORMANCE: EXPLORING BRECHT’S THEORY OF ALIENATION


This seminar will show examples of multimedia performance work produced by drama students in an Australian Secondary School. Digital technology and software were used as the basis for exploration of Brecht’s theory of alienation.

Emphasis is not placed on the effects of software or technology, but (nevertheless we should investigate) how the teacher and students interact and use it to produce performance and create meaning. Students produced and interacted with: soundscapes, techno music, dance, video, digital images, animated masks, laser transparencies.

Seminar participants will be invited to experience drama exercises using technology.
