The Audience Is Here. Book

Book

The Audience Is Here brings together research and writings about the audience and the stage, lending itself to two different readings between theory and practice: on the one hand a poetic essay, on the other a performative conference. Two ways to approach the space the audience occupies in contemporary live arts, as well as the guidelines for their participation and the gestures and actions that determine their gaze.

These reflections on the audience run parallel to others associated with the construction of democratic participation, in the search for a re-signification that goes beyond the sufficiency of formulas and mechanisms. “Where should I look? And can I still see anything?” are some of the questions the text poses, inspired by those current artistic productions that we cannot see because they were interrupted or displaced, and suggesting a change of perspective: “Dance is the most intense way of being in the present that I know”.
