Visuality in the Theatre proposes a new theoretical approach to the dynamics of looking engendered in the theatre. Visuality, this book argues, is not something we look at but something that we create by looking. Visuality is an embodied experience involving more than just the optical senses. The relationship between someone looking and something seen is fundamental to the experiences theatre and performance can evoke, while at the same time this relationship remains, to a large extent, invisible in the act of seeing. Bleeker offers a 'dissection of visuality', pointing to the close relationship between the mediations of the theatre and performance and apparatuses of vision (in both the dramatic theatre and its deconstruction on the contemporary stage).
