About this book


An epistemological inquiry into the dynamics of interpersonal trust-relations, combining philosophy, science, and critical theory in the analysis of performing bodies - on stage and in life. Rokotnitz argues for the exploration of drama as a conduit to emotional learning that can change the somatic identity of performers and audiences alike.
