Performing Real People (ALLab)


In this talk, Dr. Cantrell will discuss how actors approach listening across a range of documentary theatre forms. He will identify ‘documentary theatre’ as an umbrella term which includes a wide range of working methods, each calling on the actor to listen in different ways. Examples drawn from British theatre will include headphone verbatim theatre, tribunal theatre and verbatim musicals.

Dr. Tom Cantrell is Reader in Theatre, Associate Dean for Teaching, Learning and Students. Department if Theatre, Film, Television and Interactive Media. University of York, UK.
