A PILOT STUDY IN NEW THEATRICAL TECHNIQUES FOR THE EDUCATIONAL THEATER.
GOODMAN, HENRY; KESSLER, JASCHA
TWO PLAYS WERE STAGED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DEMONSTRATING THE FEASIBILITY OF AN INTERDISCIPLINARY APPROACH TO AN EXPERIMENTAL THEATER PROGRAM. EXISTING PLANT AND STAFF RESOURCES OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AT LOS ANGELES, AS WELL AS PROFESSIONAL ARTISTS, WERE USED IN THE PRODUCTION. A PROFESSIONAL ARTIST AND AN ELECTRONIC SOUND SPECIALIST WERE ENGAGED FOR THE CREATION OF VISUAL AND AUDITORY IMAGES WHICH WOULD INCLUDE A PHYSICAL RESPONSE FROM THE AUDIENCE. THE LARGE AUDIENCE ATTENDANCE TESTIFIED TO THE INTEREST EXISTING IN A CERTAIN PUBLIC FOR UNTRIED AND EXPERIMENTAL MATERIALS IN THE THEATER. THE IMPLICATIONS ARISING FROM THE PROJECT WERE--(1) EXPERIMENTATION IN THE PERFORMING ARTS SHOULD BE CONDUCTED IN SUCH INSTITUTIONS AS THE UNIVERSITY WHERE EMPHASIS IS ON RESEARCH AND DISCOVERY, AND (2) LONG-TERM INSTITUTIONAL GRANTS (SIMILAR TO SCIENTIFIC GRANTS) MAY BE NECESSARY TO MAKE INTERDISCIPLINARY EXPERIMENTATION A REAL POSSIBILITY.
