Saskatchewan Council for Archives and Archivists - AN EXHIBITION

Saskatchewan Presents: An exhibition of theatre and drama

Places - Theatres

"In a play ... a psychological loop is established between performers and audience. Nothing like this can occur in a movie theater. The images on the screen are patterns of light, not living actors. They are not affected by applause or hissing. They will be the same in a packed house or an empty one....No social bond between the audience and the actors can exist."
O.B. Hardison (1928-1990). "Filming Shakespeare" (1981)
