Digital and Mixed Reality Performance -

Long ‘Live’ Theatre: Feeling Time and Togetherness in Forced Entertainment’s Livestreamed Durationals and Complicite’s Auditory Hallucinations

Dr. Jennifer Buckley (University of Iowa) will deliver a talk and moderate a discussion on the phenomenon of livestreamed performances of both lengthy “durational” performances and performances that are already heavily mediated (as in Complicite’s recent audio spectacle The Encounter). Buckley challenges the habitual assumption that audiences’ and spectators’ bodily copresence is the essential ingredient in making a performance feel as if it is taking place right in from of spectators’ eyes.


This event is free and open to all. Registration is not required. For further information please contact jhi.associate@utoronto.ca
