Summary/Abstract: In my thesis I will be making the theatrical “as if” a question of cognition, I investigate how stage work opens up to our perception. I define this particular reality’s inner workings as the essence of the work, play-opportunity, theatric experience. At the end of my research the “as-if” shows up as reality whose quest is to step in from behind the scenes upholding its own truth.
