Liveness: Performance in a Mediatized Culture 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?
Since its first appearance, Philip Auslander's ground-breaking
book has helped to reconfigure a new area of study. Looking at
specific instances of live performance such as theatre, rock music,
sport, and courtroom testimony, Liveness offers penetrating
insights into media culture, suggesting that media technology has
encroached on live events to the point where many are hardly live
at all. In this new edition, the author thoroughly updates his
provocative argument to take into account new digital and media
technologies, and cultural, social and legal developments.
In tackling some of the last great shibboleths surrounding the
high cultural status of the live event, this book will continue to
shape discussion and to provoke lively debate on a crucial artistic
dilemma: what is live performance and what can it mean to us
