The Sensible Stage is a collection of essays exploring the use of live performance and moving image in contemporary art practice. It engages with a global phenomenon in which elements from theatre and cinema are integrated into art as forms of archive, questioning the concept of materiality and undermining the boundaries between what we understand as ‘live’ or ‘mediated’, the ‘body’ or the ‘image’. Opening with a discussion between prominent philosopher Alain Badiou and Elle During, this book is grounded in the practice it analyses, bringing together a unique mixture of theoretical, creative and discursive reflections on the meeting of stage and screen. This expanded edition is an updated, in-depth insight into this highly important development in contemporary art practice, and contains revised material from the previous publication as well as two original chapters.
