Finding Connection Through Mediated Performance: A Conversation with Lisa Dwan


CAST Mellon Distinguished Visiting Artist Lisa Dwan discusses the limitations and opportunities inherent in developing performances for the camera, in both film and virtualized theater. Dwan will discuss her recent work on Pale Sister, Colm Tóibín’s adaptation of Sophocles’ Antigone, and BBC’s new television thriller Bloodlands, exploring how she creates powerful recorded performances and finding ways to capture the intimacy and depth of connection inherent in live theater in a more hybridized format.
