Mary Constance Parks: The Language of Physical Theater
12 Feb 2014 - 3:24pm
The language of physical theater is like the languages of typography and animation, but more obviously connect to the human.
In this talk, three basic principles from physical theater will be presented that function as high-level constraints on how physically-trained actors can capture peoples' attention and maintain rhythm and focus during story-telling in a performance. These principles have correlates in film, animation, typography, and spoken discourse. In this talk, the principles will be demonstrated, and the attendees will be encouraged to find parallels between the physical theater structures and aspects of Interaction Design.
