8.4 Moving Bodies



Issue editors: David Williams & Ric Allsopp

SKU: 978-0-415-32133 Category:


Moving Bodies will be the final issue of a volume which explores the body and the senses in performance. Developing the practices and ideas addressed in Bodiescapes – which investigates the bodies of the performer and the spectator in, around and at performance – Moving Bodies will direct its focus towards the field of dance and choreography, and investigate actions, strategies and contexts of bodies in movement. The editors have invited contributions on the practices and technologies of moving bodies including improvising bodies, de-objectified bodies, spatialized bodies, resistant bodies, ‘bodies without organs’, still bodies and absent bodies. The issue will also consider practices and technologies that destabilize received modalities and economies of seeing as knowing, that amplify the sensorium and displace the visibility of dance and its locations; as well as the circuits and flows by means of which dance activities encounter other bodies.
