VOICES: Jenn Stephenson (Kingston, ON)

Jenn Stephen, Associate Professor at Queen's University, unpacks White Rabbit, Red Rabbit on her performance research blog following its presentation at the school in September. Some questions she's still mulling over:

"Is it even possible to have theatrical performance by a non-actor? Can an 'unfictionalized' actor successfully subvert the fictionalizing power of the theatrical frame? And if, the frame is subverted in this way, is it still theatre? Or has the whole event evaporated back into life?"

Her full analysis can be read here.
