  5. 5. Digital Existence in the Digital Theater : An Ethnographic, Transnational Study of Artistic Practices and Participation

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Medier och kommunikation

    Author : Elisabeth Wennerström; [2022]
    Keywords : digital existence; cultural participation; ethnography; phenomenology; transnational; narrative analysis; digital theater;

    Abstract : This thesis argues that the research problem, which describes a lack of a common understanding of the digital age, and what its major transformations mean for different stakeholders, can be fruitfully interrogated by attending to emergent forms of making sense in the digital theater. The aim of the study was met by raising and responding to the following research questions: How does the digital theater understand and experience digital existence in participatory potentials, and how do creatives in the digital theater bridge participatory intensities, the tensions and sometimes gaps between experienced reality and digital capabilities to expand on their own and their theaters’ participatory potential? The study combined a phenomenological approach, with an ethnographic method and narrative analysis, supported by a theoretical framework of existential media studies with a particular focus on digital existence, in combination with prospects for participation, using cultural participation theories.
