One of the most vital impacts of mediatized performance is the nature of the experience that the audience undergoes and the expression from the audience about the experience. According to Auslander (2008), the energy that exists between the performance and audience in live events, as well as the friendly environment that is developed during the live performance, does not lead to an experience of a community. The experience is subjective, metaphorical, and intuitive. Chansky (2000) complements these findings noting that the experience of mediatized performance is not confined to the particular engagement between the performer and the audience. Thus, the above arguments indicate that the performance can be different or subdivided into different sections with various themes that target a separate audience.
Mediatized performance is designed and programmed to fit the target audience that may be different and it is interactive as the performer has to be fast and decision making appropriately considering the target audience. The performer considers the audience’s reaction and expectation as they perform (Auslander, 2008). The audience reaction may be different but the performer has to pick a better choice suitable for most people to develop more interest in the performance (Herrera, 2009). A good understanding should exist between the performer and the audience. The performer might be responsible or not for the action of the audience (Wilcox, 2000). It is advisable to consider the background of the audiences targeted during a live performance and the possible reaction.
