Project Details

Description

Departing from the hyperreal condition of postmodernism, we attempt to argue that some performing arts' spectators look for and experience a kind of authenticity when attending such shows. We namely rely on a constructivist perspective supporting that the distinction between the authentic and the inauthentic can be socially or personally constructed.
