The Sensible Stage, ed. Bridget Crone

The Sensible Stage: Staging and the Moving Image is collection of newly commissioned texts that explore the moving image in relation to performance, time and the event.

Edited by Bridget Crone, the book provides a series of individual proposals and speculations on the intersections of what might be termed ‘live-ness’ in moving image and performance art practices today. Unfolding around the concept of ‘staging’, The Sensible Stage: Staging and the Moving Image discusses the use of performance and theatre strategies in contemporary art as a means to question the boundaries of stage and screen.

Published by Picture This, The Sensible Stage: Staging the Moving Image contains a mixture of discursive, theoretical and creative texts, including monographs on the work of Yael Davids, Clare Gasson, Jimmy Robert, and Cara Tolmie, and a new text-piece by Beatrice Gibson. The book also contains new essays by Vanessa Desclaux, Pil and Galia Kollectiv, Dominic Andrew Paterson, Lucy Reynolds, and Ian White plus a conversation between Alain Badiou and Elie During on theatre.
