some misc. notes I took during a panel on literary adaptation that I don’t want to lose:
“I think theatre is a medium that rewards a strong sense of place.” - Seth Bockley. “theatre is a language of action”- Leslie Danzig. it’s important to consider how the audience should read the relationship between the source material and the new piece. what, if any, is the prerequisite knowledge for both the adaptor and the audience? what is the place of the chorus in contemporary theatre?
