'Last' scenes: Experiments with the poetic and phatic, gender and genre.

Neale, Derek (2020). 'Last' scenes: Experiments with the poetic and phatic, gender and genre. Liminalities: the journal of performance studies (In Press).

Abstract

The audio scenes forming the spine of this multi-media article, its artistic argument, are scripted responses to various practice and research questions. The inquiries include: what is the relationship between work-related, everyday language and creativity, as seen in a dramatic script? Can linguistic formations be translated across different dramatic scenarios? How does plotless, comedic drama engage an audience? The performances play with language, with sound shapes and structure, with parallel poetic, phonetic and rhythmic methods. They investigate a recurring and reinvented ‘last’ scene, while also illuminating a prior ‘last’ scene: Harold Pinter’s 'Last to Go'.
