What I'm reading now - David Cole's "The Theatrical Event: A Mythos, A Vocabulary, a Perspective"

Right now I'm reading The Theatrical Event: A Mythos, A Vocabulary, A Perspective by David Cole. Considering the work I'm doing now, it's downright eerie. I'll post quotes and what not when I'm done.


  1. I read portions of this book for a class I took, Politics & Performance Interfaces, sixteen years ago. I'm still pulling from those readings to integrate experiences I had as a rock musician in the 80's, and find recently, in doing dream work on a deep level, that Cole's concepts continually show up again in my processes. What an influences his ideas had on me. It's about time I read the entire book... altho I'm a little afraid that my brain might explode!! And maybe that would be a good thing! :)-- Gwyn Henry

  2. I need to check this out again someday, as it bears on some of the things floating in my head for my current piece.
