The growth of pervasive media and digital technologies is offering theatre-makers and audiences unprecedented new challenges and opportunities. This study examines theatre as an art form in the age of new media technology. Theatre is one of the oldest art forms, and it has not only survived every technological change but has adopted and adapted along the way. Based on the Human Media theory of Isra Garcia, this study seeks to establish how theatre can be enriched by human media with the audiences‘ interest in the live event and realtime interaction. It explores the presentation and promotion possibilities of theatre on human media as well as the dynamics of new media in enriching the theatre viewing experiences.
