PERFORMANCE AND CORPOREALITY
LECTURE BY ANDRÉ LEPECKI

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 22, 2014, 6:00 PM

  • Performance and corporeality

The first lecture from the series “Points of Convergence” is dedicated to one of the fundamental terms in the theory in perfomance: the notion of corporeality.

This lecture addresses one of the fundamental concepts in performance theory: corporeality. By analyzing some key moments in the history of performance art, body art and experimental dance, from the late 1950s to today, I will suggest how performance rearticulates and undoes accepted categories of body, self, group and even the human.

Corporeality appears thus as a limit-concept both attached and detached from the body, a zone of indeterminate potencies linked nevertheless to the very material conditions of living, laboring and dying. It is by activating this zone and its elements that performance acts its provisional suspensions of what some still call the “human.”
