The Embodiment of the Unconscious, Hysteria, Surrealism and Tanztheater: An Interdisciplinary Study of Hysterical Scenes in Performative Dance
 Krtolica, Marija
2023 1-4955-1058-1 336 pages
This is an "oversized" (8x10) softcover book. "This study places choreographic examples in a dialogue with the dance and interdisciplinary scholarship, with an aim to expose the unapparent alleys for a socio-historically informed mode of spectatorship. This kind of spectatorship ponders the unique conditions of the development of dance expression, and, at the same time, examines the intersections between the medical theory, political violence, and bodies' visibility on the stage. The concept of hystericization, as it is reconsidered in this study, invites a historico-political performance analysis that embraces performers' and witnesses' responses, and emphasizes the intersubjective and political dimension of the enactment of hysterical symptoms." -from the Author's "Introduction"
