Performing presence combines extensive analysis, and extracts from interviews with the artists, as well as the documentation of elements of work and working processes, in order to provide specific insight into these engagements with contemporary practices and concepts presence.

This book will be of interest to students, researchers and practitioners of theatre and performance, contemporary art, media, new media and technology. -- .
