Text topic: Ethics of Media
Text author: Анета Стојнић
The work deals with forms of interaction between performing and screen image, and the role of new media in the post-drama theatre. In the context of electronic representation and reproduction of performing arts, mostly reducable to translation into the screen image, I analysed the screen phenomenon, its genealogy and position related to spectator’s and performer’s body. Taking performance studies as theoretical starting point, and remaing within the framework of the post-drama and screen theory discourse, I discuss possible models of interaction between the new media image and performance in the sphere of theatre, performance and video instalation. A special attention is devoted to the analysis of relation of screen image and performer’s body, where the present body becomes the final destination, and fascination with the living body entails desire for something beyond appearance. In that contexts I deal with the issue of ethic foundations of the media/screen culture universe in its relation to performing arts, pointing to processes through which the use of media technologies in performing arts results in simultaneity and introduction of uncertainty into the reality status of the performed.
