Description

Especially necessary in a historical moment in which many theatre companies have been forced to move their work online, Digital Performance in Canada illuminates the influence and ubiquity of digital technology on performance practices in Canada. This collection of essays explores how digital technology forces us to reimagine our relationships to performance. Looking at the three categories of space, bodies, and relationships, this collection includes contributors Bruce Barton, Owen Brierley, Chris Eaket, Alan Filewod, Patrick Finn, Peter Kuling, Pyrrko Marula-Denison, Kim McLeod, Jennifer Nikolai, Xavia Publius, Andrea Roberts, and Don Sinclair.
