3. Course contents *

Theater and Intermedia familiarizes the students with the intermedial dynamics of theater since modernity through both an understanding of the technological conditionof the concept of theatricalityas well as through the use of theatrical notionsin the history of the media. Immersion is the key word. We will focus especiallyon artistic practices at the intersection of theater, film and new media,as they correspond to the desire to think beyond the limits of conventional representations(from phantasmagoria, panorama and planetariums in the 19th century, to immersive performance, installation art and virtual environments in the 21st century).
