Interdisciplinary Performance: Reformatting Reality

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Spanning a hundred years (1910 – 2010) and three geographical locations – Europe, Japan and North America – this unique book examines the capacity of performance to recode reality. It argues for a seamless continuity between philosophy, critical theory and artistic practice. Each chapter ends with scores, providing readers with the opportunity to explore the discussed ideas in an embodied, and, where applicable, interactional way.

The book's analysis of such landmark phenomena as the ready-made, action painting, intermedia, feminine writing, identity politics, cyborgian bio-art and ludic (h)activism make it an invaluable source for practical theorists, and undergraduate and Masters-level students of Performance Studies, Performing Arts, Fine and Visual Arts and Cultural Studies.
