Mediatized performance act as a physical and temporal co-presence. The co-presence means the existence at the right place and time. Performance through the media platform can be accessed by any individual at any place (Herrera, 2009). The above is essential for it gives viewers more power and control because they can decide when to focus on live event performance. The mediatized performance has similar features and effects as the live theatre performance according to Auslander (2008). The use of media as a platform for performance does not affect the quality of content and the concentration level of the audience as it seems lively as compared to one on one performance. In mediatized performance, the audience and the performers are considered to be at the same place in the same period, thus, are both involved in the performance. In cases of using television, the audience and performers may be in different places and time but the content is delivered successfully without any alteration. In simulcast, Wilcox (2000) argues that the audience and performers may be in different locations but have almost the same time due to the transmission that covers a distance and the transmission may be digital or analogue but still have a slight delay.
