The recently emerging, steadily evolving realm of Art and Artificial Life, or "A-Life Art", manifests uncanny commonalities with the millenary form of live art known as theatre, which in keeping with its broadest acceptation is recognised as being closely affiliated with the performing arts. Like A-Life Art works, the performing arts stage behaviours and events as aesthetically appreciable constructs. Cultural efficacy is in both cases hinged on a commingled sense of recognition and alienation triggered by human operators amongst human witnesses, regardless of how patently anthropomorphic or estranged either of these parties might be. This text presents perspectives on modelling and staging, referring to specific in silico and in natura artificial life works and arguing for the enhancement of our imaginative rationality through the staged enactments of A-Life Art.
