Title and Abstract: In Search of the Audience - Notes on Viral Theatres and post/pandemic performance in the Anthropocene

Until this year, the idea of pandemic theatre closures was a quaint footnote relegated to the distant past of Early Modern theatre history. With the COVID-19 global crisis and widespread lockdowns, theatres went dark between the March 2020 and extending into the spring of 2021 while public cultural life in general came to a stand-still. In this talk, I will explore how to document the shifts in theatrical practice in response to the pandemic that lie at the core of our new artistic research project Viral Theatres. With the project, we aim to build a Living Archive of pandemic theatre experience and reflect the emergence of new realities underway in theatres currently. The pandemic has highlighted the need for changing our fundamental ideas about what we mean by going to the theatre and what it means to be an audience following the turn to digital performance ecologies. I will examine these changes with the help of a set of case studies from the European theatre context. In addition, I propose to read the pandemic’s ability to fundamentally reshape our cultural and social life across the globe within the wider theoretical framework of artistic practice in the Anthropocene.
