Performance: an Artificially Created Stimulus, or Running from the Bear! - the Body Mapped |
In this paper I examine various performance environmentsfrom the point of a specific body. I take six different types of bodies: thebody mapped, the body governed, the body connected, the body assaulted, thebody pivotal, and the body breathless. I commence with what I title the bodymapped. This body is derived from the neurobiological findings ofneuroscientist and philosopher Antonio Damasio.
