Product Description

This issue brings together reflections and analyses of training from a variety of specialisms and standpoints, and from various different international cultures and practices. Accounts of particular training regimes – dance, the gym, therapy – sit alongside polemical accounts of what happens to performers when they’re trained – and what they’re trained for. Overview essays suggest and describe generic characterisations of training, its structures and modes of operation. At the same time, specialist studies aim to define how training works, on both body and mind, in order to produce that very particular entity, the trained subject. Lastly, but not least, the issue explores, for both its subjects and indeed its watchers, training as a pleasure.
