Staging Space explores trends in interdisciplinary research at the intersection of architecture, new media, information technology, and performing arts, and it is based upon a research project at Sinlab, an experimental laboratory jointly run by five universities in Switzerland, Germany, and China.

Divided into four richly illustrated sections, the essays explore the topics of kinetics, audibility, visibility, and boundaries, which delve into aspects such as movement, interaction, and body tracking; electronic dispositives in acoustic space; the visibility in stage performance; and the performers and their audience. The international contributors also look at experiments by performance artists and computer scientists that explore the ways in which art and technology can create new spatial relations on the stage and within other spaces of performance.
