Performance Paradigm


New Online Journal

NOTE: you'll need to register to gain access to this journal.

"For the last decade or more media technologies and live performance have become increasingly interrelated and interdependent. Debates about this critical nexus have resulted in a diversity of views. While there is broad acknowledgement that this interpenetration has resulted in widespread innovation, there is also evidence of a certain anxiety about the status of live performance. Questions have often focused on the resultant status of the live body, the changing nature of the performance experience and of technology itself. The experience of the ‘live’ based on notions of presence is often promised and reinforced by the effect of a mass audience, but it is increasingly susceptible to digital subversion by the temporal disintegration and restructuring of audio and visual data." From the Introduction by Edward Scheer and Peter Eckersall to the inaugural issue of Performance Paradigm. [via Christy Dena's post Scholar has moved into Jupiter Green]
