About this book

Written from a practice-based perspective, this book focuses on the political character of 'cyberformance': the genre of digital performance that uses the Internet as a performance space. The Etheatre Project comprises a series of experimental cyberformances aiming to reconsider the characteristics of theatre in the Internet age.

Reviews

"This is the first monograph to consider the political potential of online performance, offering a valuable discussion of direct audience engagement and active participation strategies employed in political practices of cyberformance. The volume is highly recommended for practitioners in theatre and media alike, as well as students and scholars engaged in Practice as Research." - Maria Chatzichristodoulou, London South Bank University, UK 
  
"Christina Papagiannouli's book is a timely addition to writings about theatre in a digital era, and in particular experimental performance on the Internet. Her discussion of a directorial response to this fast-developing scene – geared around facilitation rather than auteur-like instruction – provides a reflective challenge to several hierarchical and dramaturgical norms." – Andy Lavender, University of Surrey, UK
