Description

Early drama didn't shy away from spectacle and staging the supernatural. From Croxton's exploding oven to Macbeth's floating head, the medieval and early modern stage was filled with special effects. This panel offers papers exploring how special effects were done in the period or in modern reproduction, archival research on the materials of special effects, and/or the role they played in the plays or the theatre.
