What do we mean when we talk about bodies in theatre? And how does theatre affect the way we think about the human body? Bodies are vital elements of theatre production and spectatorship. But the body is not just physical, it is also conceptual. Drawing on many examples from contemporary performance, Theatre& the Body is a provocative starting point for understanding the surprisingly complex relationship between theatre and the body. Concise and clear, this book explores the revealing tensions between the body, bodies, language, representation and movement in the theatre. Foreword by Marina Abramovic
Brings into mutual dialogue several existing strands of the study of pain and embodied violence. The volume´s two-fold approach, themed both on the hurt and hurt-inducing body, is unique. It encompasses both the victim´s presence as an image or performed event of pain and the transmitted burden or ´pain´ experienced by the watching audience. -- .
While the body appears in almost all cultural discourses, it is nowhere as visible as in dance. This book captures the resurgence of the dancing body in the second half of the twentieth century by introducing students to the key phenomenological, kinaesthetic and psychological concepts relevant to both theatre and dance studies.
The sources available for costume research today raise some important questions: Where and how did theatre and dance costumes become a visible part of an essentially material culture? How can their relation to visual arts and fashion be described and defined? What do they reveal about morality and social conventions? Where did costume designers and tailors find inspiration for an information about the various types of (theatrical) dance characters, and can their work be traced back to other visual, textual, or material sources? This volume is the second in a series of proceedings from workshops organised by the Emmy Noether Research Group »Ritual Design for the Ballet Stage: Constructions of Popular Culture in European Theatrical Dance (1650-1760)« based at the Theater Studies Department of Leipzig University. Its seven essays are the result of new research in the fields of Art History, Cultural Anthropology, Musicology, Theatre, Dance, and Costume Studies. The essays focus on both the terminology and methodology of costume research, and their internationally renowned authors present numerous case studies on topics from the seventeenth to the twenty-first centuries.
