    Page to stage: adapting works for live performance

    Consider examples of literature or film that have had theatre adaptations (e.g. Dorian Gray, Sydney Theatre Company; Cyrano, Melbourne Theatre Company, and analyse how these works have been shifted and/or restructured for a live performance context.

    • I think it would be interesting to explore how the constraints of the new medium affect the adaptation, as well as the choices that are made (what is taken out, what is kept in and why) by the person who adapts it. Maybe you could narrow your topic down to a specific adaptation to make it a little more detailed, since it currently seems like you are taking on a huge deal if you're studying multiple texts. – Sangnat 2 months ago

    • For the record, Cyrano de Bergerac was a stage play FIRST, before any of its many film adaptations. – ProtoCanon 2 months ago

    As a theatre-maker, it was interesting talking to a lot of playwrights during the pandemic, about how it impacted them: so many of them rely on the liveness of feedback from actors in spaces. A tricky time.

    A really interesting read – thanks for this. Loved the use of Muñoz.

    Having played Mass Effect with a few different Shepards, I think it’s really interesting dramaturgically, in terms of storytelling: a balance between guiding a player through a predetermined story and, as you say, giving them enough choices to feel as if they are influencing it. You encounter the game very differently depending on the choices you make, even if [SPOILER] they don’t have as much impact on the ending, as some people have noted. It does feel personal.
