Stage Presence: Reimagining Calderon's Life is a Dream in a contemporary solo performance

Supervisors

Summary

This project investigates stage presence through a solo performance adapted from Calderon's Life is a Dream. Drawing on Merleau-Ponty, the phenomenon of stage presence that I explore is the spectators' perception of the actor's drawing power in the immediate encounter between the actor and the audience.
