Open peer commentary on the article “From Liveness to “Lifeness”: Autopoiesis and an Enactive View of Performance” by Maiya Murphy. Abstract: Through a thorough review of systemic life in performance, Murphy proposes an “enactive view with a cybernetic flair.” I review two specific claims, i.e., liveness as recognition of autopoietic moments, and a proposal for embodied thinking in performance, to discuss how the author engages with the clear need to understand liveness in performance now, while offering an elegant solution as to why spectators engage with theatre as life.
