The rapid growth and development of media technologies in the XX century stimulated wide prospects for global broadcasting and archiving. These conditions contributed to the emergence of a new logic of cultural production and consumption, which also influenced the theatre. TV and radio performances gave rise to mass interaction between media and theatre. The position of the spectacle as a media material confirmed with the spread of photo and video recording, as well as digital devices that provided a space for global communication. At the beginning of the XXI century, the practice of media reproduction of theatre performances was in demand with the projects and among the audience. The broadcasting of the mediated performances became widespread in cinemas and on the Internet, social media created an environment that made it possible to archive the private experience of watching theatre spectacles in public. Such a specific type of personal content now compete with the official digital analogs of performances.

This study is an attempt to describe the logic of theatre existence as a media product, which can be produced in different media formats and consumed with the help of different technological mediums, which arose in the era of digitalization and datification. Practices of reproduction of the performances, motivated by such conditions, accumulate several important cultural effects, producing an attitude to the mediated performance as an event, an archive or a subjective presence.
