Political Cyberformance: The Etheatre Project
A new book by Christina Papagiannouli, Political Cyberformance: The Etheatre Project, examines the use of internet platforms as theatrical, rehearsal and performance spaces and explores the interactive and political potentials of online theatre, questioning the boundaries of these in-between spaces and the spatial experiences they engender. It is published by Palgrave McMillian and can be ordered here.
Christina was one of the organisers of the CyPosium in 2012, and with her Etheatre project has been involved in UpStage for many years. She and her collaborators presented cyberformances at the 11:11:11 and 121212 festivals, and at the UpStage 10th Birthday in 2014. She has participated in We have a situation! and Water-wheel Tap, and is currently part of the team developing a funding proposal for the next-generation cyberformance platform.
