Postmodernism has encountered internal and external criticism. These criticisms are considered among the tangled issues that dominate the intellectual effort of critics and researchers. Thus, in the last decade of the twentieth century and the beginning of the twenty-first century, there were calls for a new intellectual pattern that transcends postmodernism and establishes a set of values that are a reflection of a set of changes in the intellectual and cultural structure of contemporary society. It witnessed a clear confusion that led to the decline of postmodern concepts, and as a result of which the trends shifted to the new phase (post-postmodern) whose effects began to be reflected in all levels, especially human who is a preliminary version that can develop and expand. These concepts have appeared in all performances like the military, social, economic, cultural and artistic aspects associated with it, including the theater. The performance patterns of the actor began to take post-human paths when combined with digital technology and artificial intelligence. So, this research was intended to study the aesthetics of the actor's performance after postmodern theatrical performances: the escape play as a case study.
