Performance Research: Staging the Wreckage Publication ‘Crisis Acting in The Destroyed Room’

I have an article published in the latest edition of Performance Research


My article ‘Crisis Acting in the Destroyed Room’ looks at how theatre can stage the internet’s fragmentation of public narratives into media wreckage using Vanishing Point’s production The Destroyed Room as a case study. 
I use the alt-right conspiracy theory crisis acting as a critical frame to argue that online media wreckage immerses us in stories of trauma with no meaningful dialectic to explore the deeper political implications of this information.
