Theatre is a multi-faceted art form, involving and bringing together a wide range of people,
including actors, directors, playwrights, designers, stage managers, and audiences. Insights from the interdisciplinary field of consciousness studies have been able to shed new light on how we understand many processes of theatre production and reception. Consciousness studies is the study of how we think, feel and act, why we think, feel and act as we do, and what it feels like to think, feel and act as we do. In this presentation, Daniel Meyer-Dinkgräfe provides a survey of the cornerstones of consciousness studies and discusses how insights from consciousness studies enhance our understanding of theatre practice.

Daniel Meyer-Dinkgräfe studied English and Philosophy at the Universität Düsseldorf. In 1994 he obtained his Ph.D. from the University of London. From 1994 to 2007, he was Lecturer and Senior Lecturer in the Department of Theatre, Film and Television Studies, University of Wales Aberystwyth.
Since October 2007 he has been Professor of Drama at the Lincoln School of Performing Arts, University of Lincoln. He has numerous publications on the topic of Theatre and Consciousness to his credit, and is founding editor of the peer-reviewed web-journal Consciousness, Literature and the Arts and the book series of the same title with Brill | Rodopi.
