Abstract

The present article introduces the third issue of the journal entitled Gradients of liveness: socio-technical shaping of performing arts between online and offline. After situating the issue of liveness within the process of mediatization of society, and the challenges fuelled by the pandemic, we discuss the statute of the field of liveness studies. We then defend the necessity of an approach that under-stands liveness in terms of the “gradients” with which this phenomenon manifests itself. In the second part, the articles of the issue are presented, showing the multiple branches of the “liveness problem” through heterogeneous performative, technological and theoretical fields, thus highlighting the rele-vance of this theoretical tool in understanding how the sense of presence and connection is construct-ed in the context of mediatization.
