Visions on Stage – Scenic Environments in Postmodern and Postdramatic Productions

Gastvortrag von Prof. Dr. Susanne Vill – Media art opened new horizons for the visualizations of dramatic issues. In postmodern stagings projections, cameras and image processings in realtime form scenic environments by use of image databanks and let the pictures move with the action.

In postdramatic productions the technical possibilities of the media determine the subjects of the performances and show new perceptions of the real and fantastic fiction.

After a survey of postmodern and postdramatic construction techniques some recent stage  productions are discussed: The Knight of the Rose, Mozart!, Gitanjali, Cléopâtre, The Ring of the Nibelung, Ghost The Musical, Tosca, the virtual operas of the Munich Biennale, Desert Rain, The Waste Land, the live media performance Breaking News, Talking Head, and The Rite of Spring, an interactive real-time generated stereoscopic stage based media art performance produced at the Ars Electronica Futurelab.
