'On Line', Performance Research Volume 4, Number 2 (Summer 1999). Edited
by Ric Allsopp & Scott deLahunta

Emerging digital media, information and communications technologies are
changing the ways in which we understand and experience time and space,
place and body. These developments challenge us to redefine existing
strategies and forms of performance, and to create fresh approaches and
alternative environments for performance making and composition. 'On Line'
explores these changing conditions as they relate to performance practice
and discourse.
