Title: The Electronic Disturbance
Authors: Critical Art Ensemble
Keywords: new theatre
Electronic Civic Disobedience
Performing Identity
Issue Date: 1993
Publisher: Autonomedia
Abstract: New theater should tell the viewer how to resist authority, regardless of its source along the political continuum. If we seek liberation through the control of our own images, performance should illustrate resistant processes and explicitly show how to achieve autonomy, however temporary it might be. Self-presentation revealed in the performance must not be perceived by the audience as a self image that should necessarily be copied, as this will end merely as a shift in coding regimes. Rather, one should seek an aesthetics of confusion that reveals potential choices, thus collapsing the bourgeois aesthetic of efficiency.
