Modes of spectating by Alison Oddey ( Book )
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 287 libraries worldwide
The notion of spectatorship has become of increasing interest as artists develop experimental works and manufacturers seek to produce the means for viewing such works. Modes of Spectating explores the visual landscapes which spectators encounter, and how they perceive what they view. The volume questions the effect of different mediums on the spectator and asks not only how we view, but also how what we view determines what artists create. Chapters discuss how gaming and televisual media and entertainment are used by young people, and the resulting psychological challenges of human beings in th.
Re-framing the theatrical : interdisciplinary landscapes for performance by Alison Oddey ( Book )
5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 200 libraries worldwide
Alison Oddey takes us on a spectator's journey, engaging with art forms that cross boundaries of categorisation. She examines how these cross-art forms provoke a solo spectator-protagonist, and how the work becomes meditative and spiritual. In questioning the role of the spectator and the director, Oddey considers how a re-thinking and reclaiming of physical and artistic forms has contributed to a new kind of making theatre-art, searching for space and contemplation in a hectic twenty-first-century landscape. Highlighting the work of director Deborah Warner and of artists Heather Ackroyd, Dan Harvey and Graeme Miller, Oddey provocatively demonstrates the spectator as centre of the artistic experience, in an exciting and innovative analysis of the many changes taking place in contemporary performance.
Performing women : stand-ups, strumpets, and itinerants ( Book )
5 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and held by 191 libraries worldwide
Alison Oddey's interviews with prominent performing women span generations, cultures, perspectives, practice and the best part of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, telling various stories collectively. Stand-ups, 'classic' actresses, film and television personalities, and performance artists discuss why they want to perform, what motivates them, and how their personal history has contributed to their desires to perform. Oddey's critical, analytical introductory chapters consider both historical and cultural contexts, as well as an examination of themes arising from interviews. These include sense of identity, acting as playing (recapturing and revisiting childhood), displacement of roots, performing, motherhood and 'being', performing comedy, differences between theatre, film and television performance, attitudes towards and relationships with audiences, and working with directors. The prominent subtext of motherhood reveals a consciousness of split subjectivities with and beyond performance.

The potentials of spaces : the theory and practice of scenography & performance by Alison Oddey ( Book )
5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
The book interrogates notions of distance, interval, time and space explorations in scenography and performance which are concerned to encompass the creative, historical, performing, interdisciplinary, writing, architectural, and senses of presence in space. Space becomes practice; scenography becomes performance; memory and biography as the written space, which becomes spectatorship as experiential space. The authors look at the sensory anomalies which are a part of performance and which emanate from visual presentations.
