Summary
Theatre and Performance in Digital Culture examines the recent history of advanced technologies, including new media, virtual environments, weapons systems and medical innovation, and considers how theatre, performance and culture at large have evolved within those systems.... Drawing on the writings of Giorgio Agamben, Alain Badiou and Martin Heidegger, alongside the dramas of Beckett, Genet and Shakespeare, and the theatre of Kantor, Foreman, Socìetas Raffaelo Sanzio and the Wooster Group, the book positions theatre and performance in technoculture and articulates the processes of aesthetics, metaphysics and politics. The wide-ranging study reflects on how the theatre and performance have been challenged and extended within these new cultural phenomena, and asks the question that if contemporary technoculture operates under the regime of embeddedness that seeks to infect information from within while colonizing the body through science and technology, and if the new site of the struggle for sovereignty within bio-political systems is the bare life of the individual, how can theatre produce an effective response?--From publisher description
