Example text

Critical Theory and Performance (Ann Arbor, MI, 2001), p. 273. 21 Utopia literally means no place. Architecture and urban design have long been studied for the ideal plans they embody and for how the physical situations they create correspond with those ideas. Latour considers both ideas and physical things as independent actors that can affect other ideas and things. See Harman, Prince of Networks, p. 16. 22 Sebastian Serlio, The Five Books of Architecture (1611). His plates of the three stage settings are widely reprinted.

7 The call “to architect” appears in works such as Cyclops by Euripides and Peace by Aristophanes, plays that reveal the cultural roots, connotations, and expectations associated with the person of the architect and his actions, a term that would eventually (a few centuries later) give its name to the Latin discipline of Architectura. This understanding adds a new dimension to the more conventional understanding of the architect as “master craftsman,” which has been taken for granted in most histories of architecture.

10 Brook, The Open Door, p. 98. 11 Bruce Wilshire clarifies this point. When a character is murdered in a play, the actor is not harmed, so the action within a story is not the same as an action in fact. Yet drama is meaningless if it does not impact attitudes, feelings, and actions outside the playhouse. The boundary between performance and ethical, existential actions is always negotiated. See Bruce Wilshire, “The Concept of the Paratheatrical,” The Drama Review, 34/4 (1990): 169. ), Art and Social Change (London, 2007), pp.
