EXPERIENCING LIVENESS IN CONTEMPORARY PERFORMANCE: INTERDISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVES. Ed. by Matthew Reason and Anja Molle Lindelof. Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, New York, 2016. 256 pp. ISBN 9781138961593 In English.
Publisher's description: This volume brings together dynamic perspectives on the concept of liveness in the performing arts, engaging with the live through the particular analytical focus of audiences and experience. The status and significance of the live in performance has become contested: perceived as variously as a marker of ontological difference, a promotional slogan, or a mystical evocation of cultural value. Moving beyond debates about the relationship between the live and the mediated, this collection considers what we can know and say about liveness in terms of processes of experiencing and processes of making. Drawing together contributions from theatre, music, dance, and performance art, it takes an interdisciplinary approach in asking not what liveness is, but how it matters and to whom.
