Promotional Information

A lively and contentious introduction to the history, theory, and practice of digital media in performance. Dixon's book provides the solid grounding this ongoing discussion so urgently needs. -- Philip Auslander, School of Literature, Communication, and Culture, Georgia Institute of Technology Like the performance art of which it represents such a brilliant history, Digital Performance is itself literally that -- not only a superb history of new media but a field-defining performance of the trace of the digital in theater, dance, and installation. To read this book is to enter deeply into the creative artistic imagination which codes so much of contemporary digital experience. -- Arthur Kroker, Canada Research Chair in Theory, Technology, and Culture, University of Victoria, Canada There is a fine irony in the very 'bookness' of this vast and startling work. As book, what Steve Dixon has set out to produce here is stunning, monstrous in its dimensions -- virtually impossible. If you have any interest at all in recent histories of performance, this is precisely why you need to get hold of it. -- Susan Melrose, Professor in Performance Arts, Middlesex University, UK
