Open peer commentary on the article “Audience and Eigenform: Cybersemiotic Epistemology and the “Truth of the Human Spirit” in Performance” by Tom Scholte. Upshot: Truthfulness, for both actors and their audiences, emerges at the intersection of physiology and social embeddedness, according to Scholte’s argument for the importance of parsing eigenforms. But an understanding of this process on the part of actors and embedding it in their training cannot alone effectuate the social change for which Scholte calls absent change in what is presented in visible, mainstream venues in productions willing to deploy analogous progressive insights and techniques.
