Theatre as emotion-machine - livestream instead of box seat?

Curtain up for the fourth episode of our podcast "More Than a Feeling - Emotion and Society". This episode is about theatre as an emotion-machine, about the experiences of audiences and performers under the current pandemic measures, and about the importance of theatre as a space of belonging in a post-migrant society.

The two theatre scholars Doris Kolesch and Matthias Warstat are guests. Both teach at the Institute for Theatre Studies at Freie Universität Berlin. Together with Margreth Lünenborg, communication scientist at the FU Berlin, they ask themselves how theatre functions in the pandemic and what effects there are on the emotional experience.

The episode is available in German.

We welcome questions, comments and criticism by mail to podcast@sfb1171.de.
