Duggan, Patrick Rehearsing the Trauma-Tragic 'Real'. In: Rehearsing the Trauma-Tragic 'Real' Research Seminar, 7 March 2013, The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. (Unpublished)
In this seminar, in identifying what might be called a traumatological focus in performance, Patrick Duggan suggests that if we employ trauma theory as a mode of interrogating theatre and performance at structural levels, it becomes apparent that trauma-symptoms and live performance operate in analogous, dynamic and mutually informative modes. He argues that theatre, in what he has termed a ‘trauma-tragic’ mode, can function as an artistic figuring of the traumatic real and thus that live performance in this mode has a capacity to echo and embody the operation of trauma-symptoms.
