About

Theatre Production and Performance

Between January 2014 and January 2015, Professor Ros Ballaster worked with the Artistic Team at the Royal and Derngate Theatre, Northampton. The aim was for her to bring support and additional literary value to the development and delivery of in-house theatrical productions adapted from literary and historical sources, bringing expertise to the theatre from Oxford University and vice versa.

O’Reilly Theatre, Keble College, Oxford

Jason has abandoned Medea and their two children, instead choosing to remarry the daughter of Kreon, king of Corinth. Hearing of Medea's hateful cursing of this marriage, Kreon banishes Medea and the children from Corinth. Medea has one day before she must leave, during which she carries out her plot for 'justice'.

Medea is not just a story about gods and kings, myths and legends, but about love, family and betrayal. Beneath the wails and passionate outcries is a woman who has been deeply wronged by society.

Khameleon Productions presents their take on Medea in an all BAME production, merging music with spoken word and movement.

WHAT IS DANCE WITHOUT AN AUDIENCE? The final seminar in this 3 part series Tuesday, February 6, 2018 - 6:00pm to 8:15pm

WHAT IS DANCE WITHOUT AN AUDIENCE?

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 -

6:00pm to 8:15pm

Town Hall, St Aldate's, Oxford, OX1 1BX

Heritage Learning Centre

 

The Dance Scholarship Oxford programme are hosting an event on 'What is Dance Without an Audience?' with Nicky Clayton and Clive Wilkins (Department of Psychology, University of Cambridge).

What is dance without an audience? An investigation beyond language and the complexity of our social interaction to explore wordless thoughts~to include demonstrations of tango and magic.

i. Does an audience have to be real?

ii. Is dance without an audience merely ritual, resulting in an altered state, and if so, what kind?

iii. Is dance without an audience simply the confirmation of a heartbeat?

iv. Is the introspection of an intimate partner dance audience free, and if so, what is being explored?

v. Is dance without an audience the opportunity to invent and explore realities that exist outside of the compass of shared experience?
