ISBN: 0754698432, 9780754675761, 9780754698432
This collection of essays and interviews investigates current practices that expand our understanding and experience of performance through the use of state-of-the-art technologies. It brings together leading practitioners, writers and curators who explore the intersections between theatre, performance and digital technologies, challenging expectations and furthering discourse across the disciplines... To do this five concepts integral to the core of all performance are foregrounded, namely environments, bodies, audiences, politics of practice and affect... The focus is on the ideas, objectives and concerns of the artists who integrate technologies into their work.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
