Theatre & the Visual argues that theatre studies' preoccupation with problems arising from textual analysis has compromised a fuller, political consideration of the visual. Johnson examines the spectator's role in the theatre, exploring pleasure, difficulty and spectacle, to consider the implications for visual experience in the theatre.




DOMINIC JOHNSON is Lecturer in Drama in the Department of Drama, Queen Mary, University of London, UK. He is the author of Glorious Catastrophe: Jack Smith, Performance and Visual Culture (2012). He is a performance artist himself, and has performed at venues and festivals in the UK and internationally.
