Part of the Avant-Gardes in Performance book series (AGP)


It is because Adham Hafez is a dancer and choreographer that he writes about the Egyptian Revolution of 2011 as a physical practice that is performative. Hafez writes about a process of politicization in which he learns through his body as it experiences situations of fear and violence, and he comes to recognize that his body is the focus of relations of power.
