No Exit from the gaze: Sartre’s theory facilitated through aspects of Meisner’s practice
Heim, Caroline & Heim, Christian (2015) No Exit from the gaze: Sartre’s theory facilitated through aspects of Meisner’s practice. Journal of Dramatic Theory and Criticism, 29(2), pp. 127-145.
This article explores the theory/practice nexus in performance and considers a method for the transfer of theory in rehearsal and performance. In a 2011 production of Jean-Paul Sartre’s "No Exit", rehearsal, performance and post-performance exercises were devised to facilitate an understanding of Sartre’s existential concepts for audiences based on Sanford Meisner’s techniques. In this production, Sartre’s theory of “the gaze” was “practiced” by actors and audience members opening up new perspectives on the conflation of theory and practice in theatre productions.
