Abstract

This thesis is concerned with the involvement of artist David Hockney (b.1937) with theatre and theatricality. Interspersed with his studio artwork,Hockney's designs for opera, dance and drama have comprised a significant aspect of his illustrious career. They have stimulated change and exchange in his personal creativity; formed a bridge between fine art and the performing arts; and afforded interaction with music, text and theatre technology. Focusing on the period 1961 to 1978, this investigation assesses the nature

expression of his wider commitment to 'theatricality' as an artistic ideal.
