TrAIN Open Lecture: Site-Specific Theatre in a Non-Specific World

The terms “site-specific” and, more recently, “immersive” have been applied indiscriminately to a wide range of performance. This talk examines and interrogates those terms and questions what these terms mean in an increasingly digital world.

Arnold Aronson is Professor Emeritus of theatre at Columbia University in New York City. His books include The History and Theory of Environmental Scenography (revised 2nd edition), The Routledge Companion to Scenography (editor); Ming Cho Lee: A Life in Design; Looking into the Abyss: Essays on Scenography; and American Avant-Garde Theatre: A History. 

Professor Aronson is a former editor of Theatre Design & Technology, and currently co-editor, with Jane Collins, of the journal, Theatre and Performance Design. He has a long history with the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Space and Design and served as General Commissioner in 2007.
