This essay discusses performer status in environments imbued with the artefacts underpinning millennial theatre history that today take on new forms as digital media invest live art. In keeping with a dichotomous conception of human beings as determined by or determinant of their surroundings, human-computer interaction raises questions of identity where individual perception-bound and shared experience is increasingly interwoven to form a new kind of sensorium. In conclusion, the author evokes challenges to notions of identifiable individuals posed by the ‘generic humans’ whose credence is steadily being reinforced by extraterrestrial activities.
