SOIS Research Presentation: The Heat of the Stage

April 23 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Synopsis:

Is the performer on the stage a royal, elevated above all others and the center of attention; or a jester, there for the pleasure of the audience? Elements such as stage height, lighting, and sound can all impact how teller and audience come together. Based on research with open mic and slam storytelling shows and building on Marshall McLuhan’s interpretation of medium theory, this presentation discusses the impact of the “heat” of the stage.
