The History

From the times of Shakespeare and the creation of permanent theatrical spaces to today, mainstream theatre invariably relies on divorcing the audience from their surroundings. In a Black Box or Proscenium Arch stage the outside world is meant to be forgotten: the aim is to use the magic of the story to transport the viewer to a different world. To show wonders and stagecraft unassailable in everyday life, so that when the show is over the audience have quite forgotten reality. This historically was the draw of Elizabethan theatre, where sword fights and prancing bears were an attraction, of Baroque, where mechanical machines would force perspective and transform a palace into a stormy forest within seconds. Even of Stanislavskian theatre, where the world the audience were transported to mirrored exactly our own.
