Examines how contemporary performance practices have been driven by questions of The Real and the consequent political implications of the concept’s disintigrating authority.
Can techniques traditionally thought to be outside the scope of literature, such as cutting and pasting, databasing, identity ciphering, and programming, inspire the reinvention of writing?

Examines the relationship between an ethics of performance, a politics of place and a poetics of the urban environment.
