  • Subject: Q300

Analysing the materiality of theatre, Cormac Power uses Brecht to analyse the modernist idealisation of the (supposedly) direct perceptual relationship between audience the material immanence of the actors onstage. Power’s essay closes the chapter on textual materiality but also provides insights into the discussion which follows on aspects of immateriality, which covers the translation of the intangible to the tangible.
