Summary Artistieke media zijn onophoudelijk onderhevig aan mutatie en transformatie. Heel wat hedendaagse kunstenaars onderzoeken de mogelijkheden en limieten van hun medium en experimenteren met kruisbestuivingen, upgrades en mutilatie van verschillende media. Anderen verkennen expliciet de ongekende ruimtes tussen bestaande media en gaan op zoek naar de hybride bestaansvormen die deze intermediale tussenruimtes bevolken. Deze aflevering van Theater Topics thematiseert het muteren en adapteren van media in de relatie met de podiumkunsten. Hoe zijn verschillende aspecten van theater geëvolueerd in het digitale tijdperk? Hoe pasten historische tradities zich aan aan nieuwe culturele contexten? Wat zijn deze mutanten precies, en wat is hun toegevoegde waarde? Op welke manieren gebeurt de remediatie van andere media in hedendaagse performances? Leidt de resulterende onzuiverheid uiteindelijk tot een desintegratie van wat we verstaan onder 'theater', of net tot een herwaardering?
"Artistic media seem to be in a permanent condition of mutation and transformation. Contemporary artists often investigate the limits and possibilities of the media they use and experiment with the crossing, upgrading and mutilation of media. Others explicitly explore the unknown intermedial space between existing media, searching for the hybrid beings that occupy these in-betweens. This issue of Theater topics explores the theme of mutating and adapting media in its relation with theatre and performance"--Page 4 of cover
