Show Summary Details


This chapter explains how audio-visual and projected media have influenced and altered the physical stage of performance in the visual arts and media. The author analyses the impact of television as an audio-visual medium. The shift from stage-based plays or operas to screen-based television or films is also discussed. The projection of a creative visual production has now shifted to a larger circle due to mass screenings of films in theatres and film festivals. Audiences were no longer challenged by geographical difficulties in watching a live play or opera. The chapter ends with the discussion about the shift of focus from the performer on stage to the films or television shows that were displayed on a screen surface.
