This thesis is a reflection and an argument. It is a reflection on the history of the intermedial embrace between film and theatre and the implications this has for contemporary educators and learners in higher education performing arts programmes. It is also a critical argument for how and why cine-theatrical intermediality is distinct in creating particularly poignant and insightful modes of experience and learning that reveal new ways of perceiving our being-in-the-world. A disposition of vulnerability is central to the thinking and ethos within the study as I propose that the phenomenological, embodied experience of cine-theatrical practice potentially exposes educators and learners to their own fragility as the significance of our human body in contiguous time and space is brought into question. The work resides within two main sections: Mapping Constellations and Case Studies: Cine-Theatrical Pedagogy in Practice. In Mapping Constellations I pursue the parallel aims of mapping the key territories of intermediality, intermodality and hypermediality in practitioner and pedagogical terms whilst also reappraising intermediality and principally cine theatricality's significance as central modes of 20th and 21st century practice through which all of theatre and theatre pedagogy may be informed. In this context, Case Studies: Cine-Theatrical Pedagogy in Practice follows on to consider how professional methodologies of intermedial practice may act as pedagogical lenses to inform teaching and learning. Each is framed philosophically as representing a particular and revelatory pedagogy that discloses and challenges our sense of self in time and space, self as 'other' and self as a mediated, social being.
