Essay 3 Gesturing towards post-physical performance

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Callery considers physical theatre ‘not codifiable’ (2001: 5) and to apply to such a diversity of practices that it is ‘virtually undefinable’. Nevertheless she attempts to isolate some key features: the importance of the actor as a creator rather than as an interpreter; collaborative and somatic working processes; the ‘live-ness’ of the theatre and an open ‘stage-spectator relationship’ (2001: 5). It’s virtually indefinable, yet we know what it is.
