Facing The Image. On Theatricality of Space in Michael Haneke’s Hidden Michael Haneke’s Hidden (2005) became his most discussed film so far. This article summarizes the film’s reception, placing it in the context of theatrical space with its ability to position and immobilize the viewer. Drawing on the theatrical theories of Hans Thies-Lehmann and Maaikee Bleeker, as well as on Richard Schechner’s performance theory and the polemical discussion of the liveness category offered by Philip Auslander, the author argues that Hidden is a film that goes on live, unfolding in the presence of the spectator as it is emphasized by the viewer’s immobilization, which in turn resembles the situation of being in a theatre.
