Subject Area: Theatre and Performance Studies
This course can also be studied in the following specialisations: Dance Studies, Media, Culture and Technology

This subject examines the places of technology in contemporary performance culture from MTV to performance art. It considers the rise of video literacy and the expanding field of digital culture in terms of the ways in which such technologies have shifted the parameters of performance and representation. It looks at a range of performance objects, activities, events and behaviours produced in the exchange between the body and new media. It looks at questions of the convergence of performance genres and the remediation of art works and theoretical concepts such as posthumanism and cybernetics. It critiques the notion that live performance forms are discrete and unmediated and therefore cut off from contemporary cultural change.
