Nature is here read by a number of contributors as cultural, by others as an independent domain, or even as a powerful process of exchange between the human and the other-than-human. The four parts of the volume reflect these different understandings of nature and performance.

Informed by psychoanalysis and cultural materialism, contributors to the first part, Spectacle: Landscape and Subjectivity, look at ways in which particular social and scientific experiments, theatre and film productions and photography either reinforce or contest our ideas about nature and human-human or human-animal relations and identities. The second part, World: Hermeneutic Language and Social Ecology, investigates political protest, social practice art, acoustic ecology, dance theatre, family therapy and ritual in terms of social philosophy. Contributors to the third part, Environment: Immersiveness and Interactivity, explore architecture and sculpture, site-specific and mediatised dance and paratheatre through radical theories of urban and virtual space and time, or else phenomenological philosophy.

The final part, Void: Death, Life and the Sublime, indicates the possibilities in dance, architecture and animal behaviour of a shift to an existential ontology in which nature has the capacity to perform itself.
