Writing at the dynamic intersection of dance and performance studies
Dance by André Lepecki( Book )

14 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection surveys the choreographic turn in the artistic imagination from the 1950s onwards, and in doing so outlines the philosophies of movement instrumental to the development of experimental dance. By introducing and discussing the concepts of embodiment and corporeality, choreopolitics, and the notion of dance in an expanded field, Dance establishes the aesthetics and politics of dance as a major impetus in contemporary culture. It offers testimonies and writings by influential visual artists whose work has taken inspiration from dance and choreography."--Publisher
Move : choreographing you : art and dance since the 1960s by Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen (Germany)( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Move : choreographing you explores the interaction between visual art and dance since the 1960s. Focusing on visual artists and choreographers who create sculptures and installations that direct the movements of audiences, making them dancers as much as active participants, Move sets out to show that choreography is not merely about the notation of movement on paper or in film, but that it may be equally implied by sculptural works and installations. The publication presents some of the diverse yet interconnected ways that visual art and choreography have come together over the last fifty years

Singularities : dance in the age of performance by André Lepecki( Book )

11 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

André Lepecki surveys a decade of experimental choreography to uncover the dual meaning of 'performance' in the twenty-first century: not just an aesthetic category, but a mode of political power. He demonstrates the enduring ability of performance to critique and subvert this power, examining this relationship through five 'singularities' in contemporary dance: thingness, animality, persistence, darkness, and solidity. Exploring the works of Mette Ingvartsen, Yvonne Rainer, Ralph Lemon, Jérôme Bel and others, Lepecki uses his concept of 'singularity'--the resistance of categorization and aesthetic identification--to examine the function of dance and performance in political and artistic debate

Points of convergence : alternative views on performance( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thanks to its very nature, performance enters into natural dialogue with art, new media, politics, and the social sphere as a whole. Always happening in the here and now, and with a unique freedom and openness to the unknown, performance is a medium with a special ability to question its own subjects, materials, and languages. As a result, it is often best reflected in the dynamic character of contemporary art and contemporaneity in the broadest sense of the word. 'Points of Convergence' explores these ideas and investigates critical approaches to performance, ultimately aiming to stimulate new discussion between theorists and practitioners. With twelve essays by leading figures in the field of performance arts, this illustrated volume is structured in two parts. The first, authored by academics in the discipline, features an introduction to key areas of scholastic research. The second part, authored by curators and other researchers, then focuses on an account of individual traditions of performance. Taken together, the contributions identify new possibilities for interaction between the theoretical aspects of performance art and the ways performance plays out within local contexts
Robin Rhode : walk off : [anlässlich der Ausstellung "Robin Rhode. Walk Off", Haus der Kunst, München, 16. September 2007 bis 6. Januar 2008] by Stephanie Rosenthal( Book )

Moving without the colonial mirror: Modernity, dance, and nation in the works of Vera Mantero and Francisco Camacho (1985--1997) by André Lepecki( )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Section II, "Mirrors," analyzes a solo by Mantero and a group piece by Camacho as choreographic deconstructions of colonial desire. When discussing Mantero's solo, it introduces the notions of "cultural anesthesia" (Allen Feldman) and of "still acts" (Nadia Seremetakis) to show how memories of the colonial war (1961--1974) are inscribed into everydayness. Through the Derridian notion of "adieu," it identifies in one of Camacho's group pieces a critique of colonial nostalgia

In the event of performance: Media, embodiment, and politics in the Americas by Marcela Alejandra Fuentes( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

My dissertation, "In the Event of Performance: Media, Embodiment, and Politics in the Americas" shows how performance--simply understood as embodied, structured behavior--allows new ways of social intervention that challenge previous notions of 'political efficacy.' I explore the way in which, in the Americas, artists and even ordinary citizens are turning to performance as a means to intervene in abusive conditions. The performances studied here work simultaneously online and offline to address transnational issues to transnational audiences. These actions are important sites for a reconsideration of the role of bodily presence and locatedness within online and offline circuits of transmission. The performances studied here--the virtual sit ins by The Electronic Disturbance Theater in collaboration with the Zapatistas, the screen and street performances by the Surveillance Camera Players' (SCP) and Coco Fusco's in response to surveillance control; and the artistic and activist interventions within the Argentinean economic crisis--are paradigmatic examples of cultural production that invite a redefinition of contemporary political action through theories of performance and the politics of embodied behavior. These performances of dissent are core cases for a reconsideration of the role of bodily presence within current democracies. In these actions, simulation, theatricality, and parody are the main tactics through which their agents constitute the 'event' that contests the politics of erasure and subjugation. One of the central contributions of this dissertation has to do with expanding the notion of embodied presence in relation to supposedly disembodied, mediated performance. Through my case studies, I explore the ways in which artists and activists rehearse different renderings of bodily presence in different media in order to not only disturb the conditions of hegemonic power but also to build new instances of political participation. The study of these performances and their corresponding notion of multi-sited and multilayered politics leads us to recognize the way in which not only (material) bodies but also (symbolic) representation prove instrumental in opening up new political strategies and outcomes that extend political gestures beyond identities marked by territorial bonds
Impure movement (mundane body techniques in 20th century American choreography) by M. J Thompson( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whereas dance scholars frequently discuss "pedestrian movement" as uniquely democratic and bound to the achievements of Judson Dance Theater in the 1960s, this dissertation analyzes the presence of mundane body techniques in four case studies across 20th century American experimental dance. The use of mundane movement is shown to be a continuing strategy for choreographers mobilized by a political urgency whose specifics are to be conveyed via the ordinary move's relationship to realism, kinetic memory, and language
Ricanness: The Performance of Time, Bodily Endurance, and Policy by Sandra Ruiz( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under the lenses of performance studies, critical policy studies, and phenomenology, I examine these figures' iconic performances of bodily endurance as pursuits of Ricanness, a concept developed and explored to describe how the Puerto Rican colonial subject must endure his/her time as a "perceived incomplete being" within the confines of the other's temporality. I argue that these bodily endurance practices are always done in reaction to policy's quick changing hand, highlighting how it means to be Rican within the parameters of the United States, and how Rican bodies endure and respond to policies within institutional sites
