Essay title...



Currently I'm writing an essay about the role spectacle plays in theatre - what is spectacle, the purpose of spectacle, why theatre allows it to flourish  and how people in the past have attempted to eliminate spectacle from culture.  It's been tricky to work my head around  but it's almost finished. I'm still searching for that elusive title however, which i've boiled to down to...

Debord, Loos, Brook: Freeing theatre from the spectacle


Thoughts? Hopefully I'll have more to say on the subject shortly, as it's increasingly likely i'll be designing  my final project around the subject of spectacle.
