Temporality and String Theory in Imitating the Dog’s Kellerman

Allbwn ymchwil: Cyfraniad at gyfnodolynErthygladolygiad gan gymheiriaid


In this article I will address issues of temporality in intermedial theatre, with reference to Kellerman (2009), a recent intermedial piece by the UK-based company Imitating the Dog and Pete Brooks, which was inspired by string theory. I will take a rather experimental approach to theorizing temporality in performance and address it from the perspective of science philosophy, namely string theory. Through this theoretical frame I will negotiate how Kellerman's intermedial scenography attempts to engage with and respond to concepts of time and space that defy the possibilities of representation, live embodiment and human perceptual capabilities. I will also try to offer some critical perspectives on the use of science philosophy as a theoretical model for analysing performance. Finally I will address some of the ethical considerations of string theory, with reference to how Kellerman negotiates the limits of human experiences within the wider ramifications of the western, technologically progressive civilization.
