This paper explores the process of theatre mediatisation by analysing the Italian case study of Aldo Morto 54 by Compagnia Frosini/Timpano. Through a review of the recent literature on the topic, we propose to show how the conceptual framework developed in mediatisation studies can provide a useful contribution to the field of theatre/performance studies. The paper will look at three areas of theatre mediatisation: the mediatisation of dramaturgy through the concept of transmedia; the mediatisation of theatrical presence, with the debate on digital liveness, and the mediatisation of the theatrical relationship through social media. In describing the transmedia project Aldo Morto 54, we will observe the mediatisation process in the field of theatre by looking at a digital extension of a theatre performance and at the way the online audience responded to the project.

Abstract

This paper explores the process of theatre mediatisation by analysing the Italian case study of Aldo Morto 54 by Compagnia Frosini/Timpano. Through a review of the recent literature on the topic, we propose to show how the conceptual framework developed in mediatisation studies can provide a useful contribution to the field of theatre/performance studies. The paper will look at three areas of theatre mediatisation: the mediatisation of dramaturgy through the concept of transmedia; the mediatisation of theatrical presence, with the debate on digital liveness, and the mediatisation of the theatrical relationship through social media. In describing the transmedia project Aldo Morto 54, we will observe the mediatisation process in the field of theatre by looking at a digital extension of a theatre performance and at the way the online audience responded to the project.
