Abstract

This volume focuses on the relations between corporeality, the performative, and performance (including but not limited to performing arts) viewed in the present context of neoliberal global capitalism. Central to it is the reactivation of the body as a site of a new meaning-making politics for contemporary performance. This opens up a whole set of new questions regarding the way in which contemporary society, politics, economy and culture function on the one side, and processes of marginalization, segregation and discrimination on the other. We investigate what has happened to bodies and their constructed realities in the era of neoliberal global capitalism and in relation to contemporary theater, dance, performance, and performativity.
