Right For The Site

“Site-specific theatre is not new; indeed, it arguably has its roots in the happenings of the 1960s. What’s striking is the number of site-specific pieces on the scene and, more notable, the variety, each work with its own philosophical underpinnings. To wit: An existing play placed in a particular setting and, as such, enhanced or reimagined in some way – in fact, the site may be a part of a play’s revised aesthetic. Or a work fashioned to suggest something about a site, or a site and narrative that inform each other in a theatrical manner.”
