Live Performances in Digital Times: an Overview


The ‘digital shift’ is one of the key issues in today’s societies all over the world – and therefore something that naturally concerns the performing arts. This mapping explores how digital technologies are used at the different stages of the artistic process (creation, production, dissemination, archiving…) and to what aims (inspiration, audience engagement and development, marketing, sharing…). Pairing a solid theoretical part with a large number of examples from across Europe and outside, it provides an overview of live arts in digital times – which is also the title of the IETM Amsterdam Plenary Meeting 2016.
