PSi #24 Performance as Network

Performance as Network refers to two different but increasingly overlapping systems: data networks that determine our communications, economy, politics, and society; and human networks that cohere around shared values and inform cultural practices and identity.

Performance as Network speaks to the need for discourses on performance research and more broadly on cultural research to address the methods by which the arts are created, experienced, and disseminated in and as networked phenomena.
