The Poetic Function of the Stage Audience and Embedded Performance in Drama
The on-stage audience appears in plays that have embedded performances. In considering the embedded performance, one must distinguish between the on-stage performance and the theater performance, as well as the on-stage audience and the theater audience. In this perception the performer, the performed text and the audience of the embedded performance are the components of the basic communication triad, homologous to the performed dramatic text in the theater.
