Intermediality in Theatre and Performance
This is an IFTR Working Group, group members examine theatre and performance in the context of other media from an intermedial perspective. Working from a starting point that theatre provides the staging space for intermedial performances, the group examines the proliferation of texts, medial spaces and intermedial relationships created when the live medium of theatre and the performing arts intersect with cinema, television and, in particular, digital technology. Chiel was co-convener of the group until 2009. He co-edited two publications by the group, Intermediality in Theatre and Performance (2006) and Mapping Intermediality in Performance (2010).
Chiel Kattenbelt is co-editor of E-view, an online journal on theatre, film, television and digital media.
PAST PROJECTS (SELECTION)
Camillo 2.0: Technology, Memory, Experience
Chiel Kattenbelt is Chair of Programme Committee of the conference Camillo 2.0: Technology, Memory, Experience, the 17th edition of the annual Performance Studies international (PSi) conference. Camillo 2.0 is an initiative of the Theatre Studies department at Utrecht University and Festival aan de Werf, in cooperation with the Faculty of Theatre at the Utrecht School for the Arts (Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht – HKU). Camillo 2.0 combines science, scholarly pursuit and art in a five-day program consisting of lectures, presentations of current research (both theoretical and practical), performances, debates, workshops, and ‘shifts’ (i.e., hybrid programmatic components introduced by participants or initiated by the organizers in order to pave the way for unconventional presentations). The goal is to combine the most productive elements of international theory while ensuring maximum interaction, thus highlighting cutting edge research, allowing for structured dialogues in unexpected shapes and formations, and making space for informal encounters between scholars and artists.
