Title:
Disciplined-based applied theatre solo performance: “Acting Alone” – artist led research exploring boundaries of performer / audience relationships
Authors:
Hunt, Ava
Abstract:
Acting Alone is a solo performance based on seven years of research which builds on Ava’s research trip to the West Bank in 2013. In its exploration of the complex situation faced by those living in Palestine, Acting Alone challenges the theatrical conventions most often experienced by audiences. It invites them to interact: to cross the dramaturgical divide and create an ending where no-one, including the performer, knows the resolution. Ava Hunt trained as an actor at The Drama Studio, London, for over 30 years she has worked as a performer, director, producer, and for twelve years as a Senior Lecturer at University of Derby teaching Applied Theatre. She trained with Augusto Boal, worked with Dorothy Heathcote, MBA investigating MOE and has an MA in Applied Theatre. Her portfolio includes theatre for young people, work in prison, young offenders. Her international research includes projects in Sri Lanka, Soviet Union, Czech Republic, Palestine and Romania. Her research in solo performance challenges the theatrical form, raise questions and provokes debate.
