THE SENSIBLE STAGE

THE SENSIBLE STAGE is a programme of three performance works that use various methodologies of communication and engagement (or disengagement) ranging from storytelling to modernist theatre to participatory performance. THE SENSIBLE STAGE addresses questions of experience and perception, participation and spectatorship in relation to performance.

THE SENSIBLE STAGE draws on the idea of the common sensorium described by the French philosopher, Jacques Rancière as "... ways of being together or of being apart, of being inside or outside, in front of or in the middle of", to ask how the staging of moments of common experience is affected by the differing approaches and methodologies chosen by the artist.
