Moving towards the alien ‘other’ …

Abstract:

This chapter represents the views of practitioners working in virtual worlds on how to make sense of them. It looks into a variety of physical and virtual locations and their applicability to be used for performance practices. It investigates the willingness of the participants to be transformed by such spaces and by the technologies used, and examines the relationships between the viewer and performance and between virtual and physical realities. The authors conclude that nowadays the boundaries between those realities are becoming blurred, with audiences becoming fully incorporated into the performance and with the technology becoming more integrated with them.
