Bodies in Commotion: Disability and Performance

by Carrie Sandahl and Philip Auslander (Editors) - £28.95  The University of Michigan Press (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780472068913 | ISBN 10: 0472068911

Bodies in Commotion is the first book to explore the lively intersection of performance studies and disability studies, provoking new ways of looking at body, space, spectatorship, and identity.
 
In this groundbreaking collection, leading critics, artists, and activists take on topics that range from theater and dance to multimedia performance art, agit-prop, American Sign Language theater, and wheelchair sports. The multiple perspectives illustrate how disabled bodies are "bodies in commotion"—bodies that dance across artistic and discursive boundaries, challenging our understanding of both disability and performance.
 
Bodies in Commotion exposes for the first time the mutually interpretive qualities of these two emerging fields, making this a unique, dynamic new resource for artists, activists, and scholars.
