Computers as Theatre

Addison Wesley Publishing Company, Inc. (Reading, Mass./Menlo Park, Cal./NY) 1993, English text 214 pp.

Computers as Theatre offers an entirely new perspective upon the development of the modern technologies of computation and communication. The main theme of this multithemed book is that these technologies offer new opportunities for creative, interactive experiences and, in particular, for new forms of drama, to go beyond that which was possible until now. To think of human interaction as drama is to think broadly, to take a wide overview, and to emphasize the thematic aspects of our daily activities and needs. By doing so, we free ourselves from small, mundane considerations. This book forces us to take a wider, broader perspective on the nature of human activity.
