Unlike many other texts dealing with performance theory, "Space in Performance" uses as a foundation detailed analyses of theatre rehearsals, including discussions of actors, directors, and audience members. This style of ethnography is most common in anthropological analyses of religious and cultural rituals- or less often to the performances of plays- but McAuley's focus is on process of creating a performance, instead of the performance itself. As a director and theorist, I found McAuley's work unbelieveably useful in thinking about space and meaning.

She argues that theatre requires not only liveness and the presence of both performer and spectator but also the space where those presences meet. That lived space must be added to the first two aspects and examined as a basic element of the theatrical act. Thus McAuley seeks to explore the multiple functions of this spatial reality in the construction and communication of theatrical meaning (4). Export citation Request permission.
