Cyborg theatre: corporeal/technological intersections in multimedia performance

Cyborg theatre: corporeal/technological intersections in multimedia performance

Parker-Starbuck, Jennifer

This book articulates the first theoretical context for a 'cyborg theatre,' metaphorically integrating on-stage bodies with the technologized, digitized, or mediatized, to re-imagine subjectivity for a post-human age. It covers a variety of examples, to propose new theoretical tools for understanding performance in our changing world
