This final chapter discusses the upcoming concept of technologies that have almost blurred the line between performers and spectators. Modern day technology has advanced far beyond the arena of theatre, dance, or performing arts. The advancement of technology from the 1960s has led to the creation of environments where the participant does not just remain a passive viewer on the other side of the screen. In the 1980s and 1990s, technological advancement blurred the line of division between art and science. The chapter concludes with a discussion on the urban realm and its transformation due to networking and mobile technologies. Using media strategies, mobile systems, and pervasive games, the performance of art becomes a live and interactive medium for the audience.

Keywords:   technologies, environments, mobile systems, pervasive games
