Jenniferʼs afternoon lecture will delve into the theories underlying her first book, Cyborg Theater – specifically looking closer at her taxonomy of the body and technology in performance broken down into the three categories of: abject, object, and subject; along with updated examples of these categories applied to contemporary performance.
Jennifer will also discuss the development of her upcoming project in collaboration with UB Department of Theater and Dance Professor, Sarah Bay-Cheng.
