Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Liveness: Performance in a Mediatized Society addresses what may be the single most important question facing all kinds of performance today. What is the status of live performance in a culture dominated by mass media? By looking at specific instances of live performance such as theatre, rock music, sport and courtroom testimony, Liveness offers penetrating insights into media culture. This provocative book tackles some of the last great shibboleths surrounding the high cultural status of the live event. Philip Auslander asks, what is live performance and what can it mean to us now?
