THEATER 48.1

VOLUME 48, NUMBER 1

“Spectatorship in the Age of Surveillance,” a special issue of Theater magazine, guest coedited by Miriam Felton-Dansky and Jacob Gallagher-Ross, investigates surveillance from mass data collection to government spying and other kinds of scrutiny of live bodies. As the editors’ introduction puts it, “What forms of surveillance have found their way into our lives—online and off? How might theater and performance, art forms predicated on heightened experiences of viewing—help us to see them?” The issue includes essays by Annie Dorsen, Jennifer Parker-Starbuck, Shonni Enelow, and John H. Muse, as well as plays by Big Art Group and Alexandro Segade and a photo portfolio from Will Rawls and Claudia Rankine.
