This lecture aims to give a brief theoretical insight about digital performance and the characteristics of it. Then the genealogy of the body notion in theater will be discussed and different technological bodies will be investigated through analysis of several cyborg theater examples. After having built an idea about the use of technological bodies in cyborg theater, the lecture will point out why it is important to theorize cyborg theater from the perspective of post-human philosophy.
