Identify aspects that you consider key in audience interaction (e.g. dramaturgy, scenography or technical mechanisms). Dramaturgy was specific interaction with large scale costumes performers intensely walking up to audience, sometimes encouraging them to dance, touch their costumes or pose for selfy photographs or responding to audience applause, shouting to them, rushing to them for engagement- photo or dance. Technical mechanisms where sometimes large props- hand held to touch or reach audiences and certainly glamour/glitz of feathers,sequins etc to attract audience eye and gaze as part of spectacle and the scale of the work in particular.
