10:00 - 12:00 Music As A Chariot 1: Big Bang to Human Ritual

Presenter: Richard K. Thomas

If theatre is indeed, a type of music, then we should be able to trace its origins throughout all time. That’s exactly what we propose to do, starting with the Big Bang and the "dawn of time" and then tracing our biological roots through the evolution of human perception, the development of language, and the origins of mimesis. We’ll conclude by pulling these three fundamental characteristics of theatre together in its earliest manifestation, human ritual. And we’ll do this all with an ear towards the implications of these developments for us as theatre composers and sound designers.
