EVENT-SPACE: THEATRE ARCHITECTURE & THE HISTORICAL AVANT-GARDE
(Dorita Hannah: Routledge Press)
Event-Space radically re-evaluates the avant-garde’s championing of nonrepresentational spaces, drawing on the specific fields of performance studies and architectural studies to establish a theory of ‘performative architecture.’ ‘Event’ was of immense significance to theatre’s revolutionary agenda, resisting realism, naturalism and, simultaneously, the monumentality of architecture itself. This book analyzes a number of spatiotemporal models central to that revolution, in order to both illuminate the history of avant-garde performance and inspire contemporary approaches to performance space.
