Abstract in another language

This papers sets out to propose 'interactivity' as a useful category for analysing how and for what purpose artists make use of digital and telematic set-ups within theatre and performance. In a dictionary style, it offers the reader the concept's history in both sociology and performance studies and contains a case-study on the performance CallCutta (2005) by Rimini Protokoll.

Whereas conventional aesthetic analyses attempt to examine medial configurations in theatre in terms of their aesthetic form, the concept of interactivity defines these aesthetics as dynamic formations. It calls for a paradigm shift from that of meaning towards a paradigm of bodily action. As a notion that shifts between the social and the aesthetic, the concept is particularly useful for describing the transformational potential of digital configurations.
