Abstract

This research is based on a case study of The Famous Spiegeltent, It investigates the staging of performance from both spatial and social perspectives and applies an innovative approach to practice-based research to construct its findings. The thesis proposes a new theory of performer''spectator interaction and describes this experience as the partial performer''partial spectator transgression. This experience blurs the role between performing and spectating producing a sense of otherness that creates a partial experience of community.
