IMMERSIVE THEATRE…what is it? why is it so trendy?

In this section of our blog we would like to gather some information about current practitioners and companies interested in site-specific and immersive theatre. Hopefully we will get to understand what it is: just a ‘trendy’ label?  something more?  Why is it so popular? What do critics and academics make of it?

We welcome contributions for anyone passionate on the topic! Please share your work, ideas, useful sources, material, videos, books, articles…

Some attempt to define IMMERSIVE THEATRE from various sources:

On Immersive Theatre – Gareth White  lectures in Applied Theatre and Community Performance at Central
School of Speech and Drama, University of London.
