The Moment – Winter Chiang’s Theater (Macao Theatre Documents Exhibition 2023)
Macao Theatre Culture Institute
In the darkness and light of theatre and the unexpected encounter with non-conventional theatre, the decisive moments of photographers capture the unrepeatable movements that would become the future theatre archive. Since the invention of photography in the 19th century, the relationship between performing arts and photography has become increasingly intertwined, and theatre photography has become a major field of theatre iconography. Theatre photographers capture the moments and record the live performances, and at the same time, it is impossible for them to represent those captured moments without any bias. It is the scene of performers, and it is also the scene of photographers.
