Wooster Group's La Didone and Syfy's Battlestar Galacticahttp://www.thirteen.org/sundayarts/blog/performance/intergalactic-travel-music/687/
In Ruud van den Akker’s set, lit by Jennifer Tipton, monitors placed at various points show the film, so we can match up the recorded and live action. There are many “trick” film sequences that show hands working; the live actors stand behind the screens pretend those are their hands, like a boardwalk cutout photo attraction. At times the arias overlapped with the spoken text; surtitles for both were projected side-by-side. Both genres rely on exaggerated, artificial behavior, coming closer to intersecting than you’d expect.
