  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Theatre; Performance Studies; Cognitive Neuroscience; Enaction; Embodiment.

This paper aims to investigate the hypotheses expressed by Bruce McConachie in his essay "The cognitive science meets performance studies". This book highlights well the contribute that the debate between scholars on performance and cognitive scientists can offer, pushing this debate to a new phase. However, this new phase emphasizes problematic issues that have been marginal and silent up to now, like the historical periodization of collaborations or the little attention paid to the study on sensory-motor mechanisms of the actor and the audience.
