About this book

This project investigates the implications of technology on identity in embodied performance, opening up a forum of debate exploring the interrelationship of and between identities in performance practices and considering how identity is formed, de-formed, blurred and celebrated within diverse approaches to technological performance practice.

In its ambition and scope this volume will be of interest to those concerned with somatic practice and the range of emergent thinking and multiple impacts of digital technologies deployed in contemporary performance.' - Scott Palmer, New Theatre Quarterly

'...a solid collection of interesting and insightful case studies of performance events and practices incorporating media technologies.' - David Z. Saltz, Theatre Journal

'This book has something to offer those interested in the confluence of performance and technology from practitioners to scholars of all levels, as well as those outside the academy with an active interest in this type of performance work.' - Sophie Lally, Contemporary Theatre Review
