THE EMANCIPATED SPECTATOR: HOW AUDIENCE ROLES ARE CHANGING
A FESTIVAL OF ANIMATED OBJECTS – WP PUPPET THEATRE PARTNERSHIP
CALGARY CENTRAL PUBLIC LIBRARY MEETING ROOM 14
SATURDAY MARCH 16, 2019 – 10:45 AM – 11:45 AM
Facilitated by Wendy Passmore
In puppet theatre and in greater society the role of the audience is changing. Productions challenge the division between actors and onlookers, participation both offline and online is the norm. Public and private is blurred. Creativity is claimed for everyone. The maker movement explodes. Indie art is mainstream. Citizens demand control of their own destinies. This panel will tackle a discussion on the universality and the differences in audience expectations and roles.
