This year’s Festival theme is “Theatre and Technology”, and Dr. Saltzberg will present on the consequences and implications of the employ of digital technologies in live performance. He will focus specifically on his tenure at the University of Missouri as the Mizzou Advantage Postdoctoral Fellow in Managing Innovation: Navigating Disruptive and Transformational Technologies, and his creation and implementation of a course entitled ‘The Theatre and Practice of Digital Media in Performance.’ Dr. Saltzberg’s presentation explores ‘liveness’ and the ontology of presence.
