- et al.
This research explores how plays and performances are affected by their physical location. I will use my experience as the Artistic Director of the BarnStorm student theatre company as well my site-specific experiments with The Last Croissant by Veronica Tjioe to investigate how bringing spatial consideration to the forefront affects a performance. I will also attempt to determine a reason for the recent mainstream popularization of this kind of non-standard performance space.
