In Antiquity, an operating theatre was a non-sterilized amphitheater where students and curious spectators could observe doctors work on chirurgical procedures. Nowadays, communication technologies allow doctors and scientists anywhere in the world to conduct operations from afar –including to astronauts in space missions. This is called e-health or telemedicine, and this was the starting point for Audrey Cottin’s “O.perating T.heatre O.T.”, a series of performances organized by episodes, each involving live video stream transmissions between specific locations.
