Power and the body: Revisiting dance and theatre aesthetic of resistance in the academy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Theater and dance are fellow travelers. Sometimes they are close friends, sharing lodgings, swapping influences, commenting on the same delights and disturbances, even taking a turn or two on the floor together. Sometimes they are rivals, insisting on their own visions of aesthetic merit, concepts of time, space and body, and relationship to history and culture. And sometimes they take divergent paths, walking at different paces, occupied with their own thoughts and casting barely a glance toward one another. It will be a time of reunion for these two embodied arts, a time for exchanging ideas and reflecting on their long relationship.
