Reviews

“Kara Reilly’s edited collection on theatre and analogue technology is timely. … Reilly’s collection claims to be, and is, the first study that historicizes ‘discourses of digital performance’. … This book will be of interest to all theatre and performance students and scholars, as well as science and cultural historians and all those interested in examining how theatre, performance, and technology have come together not only in current practice but also in a diverse range of historical contexts.” (Maria Chatzichristodoulou, New Theatre Quarterly, Vol. 31 (3), August, 2015)

'These explorations of intriguing oddities of performance history, interspersed by 46 illustrations, covers projects ranging from Richard Beacham's minutely re-created Roman-era toy theatre with mechanized movable parts to Michael Chemers's ongoing work with robots whose artificial intelligences lack (to date) what is understood as empathy Recommended [for] graduate students, researchers, faculty, technical students, professionals, general readers.'
