Notions of capture and manipulation infer the existence of an interface that combines performer with system, an interface that separates (or intervenes in) the space between performance, intention and history. It is precisely the effect and provided opportunity of the intermediary device on the practice and craft of the actor, that is particularly examined in this work. Defining the scope of current practice for the contemporary actor is a key construct of this challenge with the most appropriate definition revolving around the pursuit of providing a required mixture of performance and content for live, mediated, framed and variously captured formats that exist in the present day. One of these particular formats is Performance Capture which this paper interrogate in more detail.
