Performance and Technology: Practices of Virtual Embodiment and Interactivity 
Susan Broadhurst and Josephine Machon (Palgrave Macmillan)

This original and timely collection features writings from international
contributors who specialize in digital art and performance practices.
There are few writings per se that attempt to interrogate the
interaction between new technologies and performance practice.
Furthermore, none have so far linked the sensuous contact that must
exist between the physical and virtual, together with the resultant
corporeal transformation. In certain technological practices,
physicality is both transcended and ludically inscribed - the play
(jouer) being all. Consequently, digital practices potentiate creative
and aesthetic possibilities and demand new perceptive strategies.
