Investigates critical approaches to performance, ultimately aiming to stimulate new discussion between theorists and practitioners.
A queer phenomenology, Ahmed contends, reveals how social relations are arranged spatially, how queerness disrupts and reorders these relations by not following the accepted paths, and how a politics of disorientation puts other objects within reach, those that might, at first glance, seem awry.
Drawing on many examples from contemporary performance, this book is a provocative starting point for understanding the surprisingly complex relationship between theatre and the body. Foreword by Marina Abramovic.
