Like a Prosthesis: Critical Performance à Digital Deleuze

Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on Gilles Deleuze's theatres of movement and repetition. It proposes a ‘Digital Deleuze’ who provides a creative approach to mediality from which to consider the revolutionary variation of corporeality through digitality in the new-media performances of several digital artists including Shelley Eshkar, Paul Kaiser, and Jonah Bokaer. It suggest that the underappreciated key to Deleuze's theatre of movement is how its shift away from the sameness of identity opens the path to the revolutionary imperatives of sociability and community that take place within the framework of interrogation.
