Abstract

The theoretical notions established in this chapter foreground the importance of perception and experience for the application of phenomenology in the study of performance art. It demonstrates how accounts for embodied experience through the memories of the artists who performed the in case study performance artworks can be utilised examine the reciprocal relationship between the lived body of the artist and the audience.

On the context of the book:
This book introduces the study and application of performance art through phenomenology, inviting readers to explore contemporary performance art and activate their own practices. Using queer phenomenology to unpack the importance of a multiplicity of self/s, the book teaches readers how to be academically rigorous when capturing embodied experiences. Through approachable exercises, definitions of key phenomenological terms, and interviews and insights from some of the best examples of transgressive performance art practice, the work enriches the wider scholarship of theater studies. Situated within contemporary phenomenological scholarship, the book will appeal to radical artists, educators, and practitioner-researchers.
