Using digital projection to evoke aesthetic ideas in performance

Knapton, Benjamin W. (2014) Using digital projection to evoke aesthetic ideas in performance. PhD by Creative Works, Queensland University of Technology.


This practice-led research project investigated the use of digital projection as a compositional tool in live performance. The project was carried out through the creation of a new Australian theatre work called Genesis that poetically integrated digital projection and live performance. The investigation produced a framework for creating powerful theatrical sequences where the themes and ideas of the show were embedded inside particular performance gestures prompting an expanded aesthetic perception of the content.
