In this paper it is described the presence mediated by imaging devices. It is focused on the contemporary intermedial scene, emerging as the highlighted study Rouge Mékong, an immersive spectacle developed by Collectif Lebovitz, a Canadian interdisciplinary collective of artists. This experience will guide us as a systematization of the presence effect concept, developed by Josette Féral, and investigated here as a constituent of the dramaturgy of this spectacle. It is also investigated the presentation of discussions focused on the presence of the actor mediated by virtual image technology and the expectations of perception on the audience raised by Auslander (2008), Féral (2012) and Lehmann (2007) when in relation to the intermedial scene.
