  • Reinelt, Janelle

    Reinelt probes issues of belonging and exclusion in immersive theatre practice in relation to spectatorship. Recent scholarly studies (Alston, Lavendar) have focused on issues of responsibility and engagement in the context of the ‘experience economy’ of neoliberal culture. But what is being experienced, and what constitutes an ethical claim in simulative experiences that are both ‘real’ and fictional—often in the same breath? Do these performances have the possibility of calling into being a community or at least a certain counter-public? Examples will come from British and European artists ranging from Punch Drunk to Ontroerend Goed. The role of the spectator and the methodological question of how best to research it will be the focus of this paper.
