  • What is Site Specific Theatre?
    Site specific theatre is considered any theatrical production performed at a unique location which was built for a specific purpose, other than theatre, add depth to the performance. Sites are selected based on their ability to compliment the story, using the sites specific landscape to enhance both the actors performance and the audience interaction. A site might include locations such as a beach, forest, tram, swimming pool or abandoned warehouse, pushing the boundaries of traditional theatre and offering traditional theatre audiences something different.
  • Why see or host a theatrical production outside of a conventional theatre?
    Site specific theatre pushes the boundaries of traditional theatre and offers traditional theatre audiences something different as the site itself becomes part of the performance. ​ Sites locations include architecture, audience placement and a degree of audience participation, which will influence the type of experience audiences will have, based on the sites ability to compliment the story, and enhance both the actors performance and the audience interaction. This can attract people whom may not normally attend a conventional theatre setting, but is also but a way to explore, activate or showcase spaces selected for performance to the greater community & potential future or recurring customers.
  • What is The Drama Merchant's brand of Site Specific Theatre ?
    Based on the forgotten concept of a drawing room play, in which a play takes place, or is designed to be re-enacted, in the drawing room of a home for the common practice of entertaining a guest; The Drama Merchant has designed his own unique & intimate style called Silent Stage. Here he can offer a more personal “fly on the wall” or “first-hand’ experience, which offers unique perspectives to traditional forms of storytelling while providing audience members with memorable experiences. ​ The Drama Merchant aims to be a site-specific theatre expert who collaborates with businesses in activating and creating intimate & unique theatrical experiences, using spaces not traditionally viewed as a stage!
