Abstract:The nature of spectatorship in our mediatized society has also changed. The American consumers' collective interaction with media has created a "participatory spectator" who, influenced by their interactions with media forms, has learned to advance theatrical narratives beyond the threshold of the theatre space into their own private space. In the case of the "participatory spectator" the body becomes the site of negotiation between the dominant media and the smaller, but still relevant theatre. The spectator's body becomes an interstitial space, or a site in which the competing claims of both theatre and media reside, each contending for cultural power and prominence to maintain cultural efficacy.
