Description: This seminar invites students to take stock of the impact of computer technologies in the domain of theatre and performance, where recordings of 20th- and 21st-century performances offer a form of theater history not previously accessible. What does it mean to “do” theater history digitally? How have digital technologies shaped contemporary historiography? As theater and dance makers and performance artists of all types, how does one create work in light of a digital record?
Sarah Bay-Cheng is Chair and Professor of Theater and Dance at Bowdoin College, where she teaches theater history and theory, dramatic literature, and intermedia performance. Her research focuses on the intersections among theater, performance, and media including cinema history, social media, and digital technologies in performance.
