Synopsis

Drawing from the author's unique interdisciplinary experience, Embodied Performances responds to the feminist call for advances in conversations across disciplines. Through a pioneering integration of performance, psychotherapy and feminist philosophy it offers an understanding and critique of embodiment and proposes expansive ways of deconstructing (undoing) and re-constituting (re-doing) sexuality and gender, and thus more embodied and ethical ways of 'doing' life. Embodied Performances presents innovative ways of 'knowing' and 're-visioning' which evolves the contemporary zeitgeist by allying digital media with established forms and considering the socially constructed and biological body at the forefront of theory and practice in both the arts and humanities. In addition, it provides practice-based evidence in the form of thirty-six short online, password-protected film episodes and stills, forming an integral part of the unfolding discussion in each chapter.
