La performance della soggettività tra scena e studi di genere

Descrizione

My research focuses on the relation between the body and the subject in the field of performing arts (i.e. Dance and theatre). The goal of the research is on the one hand, to disclose how contemporary art practices rethink subjectivity by processing, comparing, and deconstructing its social images. On the other hand, to question the current methodological approach of the performing art theories.

Despite the Identity Studies (Disability Studies, Feminist Studies, Queer Studies ecc) and the artistic practices are questioning the categories of body, subject, genre and race, the theatrical scholars, at least in Europe, are far from the adoption of methodological and linguistic instruments suitable for the interpretation of the artistic and philosophical contemporary scenario.

The reformulation of the theatrical form took place trough decomposition of the whole of a genre into its individual elements. Text, body, lights, object, sounds are each treated as autonomous realities. Once the actor is free from the playing a character, the representation of the subject is entrusted to the body. Consequently, theatrical scholars, from different perspectives, have considered reduced the actor's ability to attest a subject. The main hypothesis of this research is that artistic practices go beyond both stereotypes and available scientific theories, creating further lens for the reading of subjectivity. At the same time these experiences put into question the adoption of uniform and stable categories for the interpretation of the actor's work.
