This article discusses the processes of performance practice in a two-to-two context of both rehearsal and live performance. The work discusses the project Hotel Two Rooms where two participants were invited to a hotel room to adapt a short scene from a movie and perform to a live feed for an installation. The writing explicates practice through the theory of play and talks through a contemporary notion of adaptation for performance works.

  • Adaptation, or the conversion of oral, historical or fictional narratives into stage drama has been common practice for centuries. In our own time the processes of cross-generic transformation continue to be extremely important in theatre as well as in the film and other media industries. Adaptation and the related areas of translation and intertextuality continue to have a central place in our culture with a profound resonance across our civilisation.
