'Insider-other': spectator-dancer relationships fostered through open rehearsals

Ali-Haapala, Anja Saara (2016) 'Insider-other': spectator-dancer relationships fostered through open rehearsals. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis addresses audience engagement challenges during professional mainstream ballet and contemporary dance company performances by examining spectator-dancer relationships. Focusing on the open rehearsal as an audience engagement tool, this project presents a new line of enquiry in dance reception studies. The findings signify that open rehearsal attendance can contribute to more meaningful and enjoyable performance experiences for audience members by opening up the possibility of different relationships with dancers.
