Performing arts allow us to creatively challenge digitally remediated experience, and to collectively reflect on and explore its prolific scales, materials, and modes of existence. Through celebrations of diversity and idiosyncracy, live performance helps us counter the normative pressures of digitisation. This keynote looks at how theatre - Artaud's crucible - is a uniquely powerful means for mobilising the poetic energies that characterise what is human, and what it is to be human. This in turn is seen as a source of vital resilience, tuning our senses of liveness to digital - and post-digital - times.
