In an atmosphere of growing authoritarianism, how can we draw attention to performance as a transaction of sensorial agency - the right to be seen, heard, recognized - the right to be palpable? Improvised Futures attempts to frame performance as doing, as fraught negotiations of agency and identity. As it considers the performative effect of a range of ideas, actions and situations that have shaped society and defined cultural expression since the 1990s, it frames the body as a site of radical imagination. The volume comprises texts and artworks by artists, academics and activists, placing these works in conversation with each other in order to elicit new meanings and connections.

Choreographies of 21st Century Wars

However, we argue that dance performance offers the opportunity for a challenging and thought provoking encounter with war, through embodied, kinesthetic responses. In this chapter, we analyze how the body is the “frontline” by ...

Wars in this century are radically different from the major conflicts of the 20th century--more amorphous, asymmetrical, globally connected, and unending. Choreographies of 21st Century Wars is the first book to analyze the interface between choreography and wars in this century, a pertinent inquiry since choreography has long been linked to war and military training. The book draws on recent political theory that posits shifts in the kinds of wars occurring since the First and Second World Wars and the Cold War, all of which were wars between major world powers. Given the dominance of today's more indeterminate, asymmetrical, less decisive wars, we ask if choreography, as an organizing structure and knowledge system, might not also need revision in order to reflect on, and intercede in, a globalized world of continuous warfare. In an introduction and sixteen chapters, authors from a number of disciplines investigate how choreography and war in this century impinge on each other. Choreographers write of how they have related to contemporary war in specific works, while other contributors investigate the interconnections between war and choreography through theatrical works, dances, military rituals and drills, the choreography of video war games and television shows. Issues investigated include torture and terror, the status of war refugees, concerns surrounding fighting and peacekeeping soldiers, national identity tied to military training, and more. The anthology is of interest to scholars in dance, performance, theater, and cultural studies, as well as the social sciences.

Esta publicação traduz a riqueza da exposição Terra Comunal: Marina Abramovic + MAI (Sesc Pompeia – São Paulo, 2015), que exibiu trabalhos de mais de quarenta anos da trajetória de Marina Abramovic.

Nesta obra, o leitor encontrará textos da historiadora de arte Sophie O'Brien, do filósofo Peter Pál Pelbart e da antropóloga Regina Müller, que estudam o trabalho aberto e colaborativo entre artista e espectador, os conceitos de presença e mistério, transcendência, transformação e humor na obra da artista sérvia.
