The Provocation of the Senses in Contemporary Theatre (Routledge Advances in Theatre & Performance Studies) by Stephen Di Benedetto

DiBenedetto considers theatrical practice through the lens of contemporary neuroscientific discoveries in this provoking study, which lays the foundation for considering the physiological basis of the power of theatre practice to affect human behavior. What do these theories enable us to see about the ways in which the theatrical event is created? DiBenedetto presents a basic summary of the ways that the senses function in relation to cognitive science and physiology, and then offers an overview of dominant trends of discussion of the realm of the senses in performance. Following on, he offers examples of how those ideas are illustrated in recent theatrical presentations, and how the different senses form the structure of a theatrical event. Finally, DiBenedetto suggests the possible implications that these neuroscientific ideas have upon our understanding of theatrical composition, audience response, and the generation of meaning.
