About this book

This book articulates the first theoretical context for a 'cyborg theatre', metaphorically integrating on-stage bodies with the technologized, digitized, or mediatized, to re-imagine subjectivity for a post-human age. It covers a variety of examples, to propose new theoretical tools for understanding performance in our changing world.

Reviews

"With Cyborg Theatre, Parker-Starbuck has created a rigorous and engaging resource for scholars, practitioners, pedagogues, and students of multimedia performance... [The book provides] a valuable model of performance studies scholarship that can serve to guide future investigations of cyborg performance." - Elise Morrison, Contemporary Theatre Review

"Cyborg Theatre is essential reading for all those interested in the complex and multiple intertwinings between bodies and technologies, in theatre and performance, and in life overall, in an environment within which technology claims increasing degrees of agency." - Maria Chatzichristodoulou, International Journal of Performance Arts and Digital Media
