Space and Sensation: Zoé Degani’s Art of Pluralising Signs Onstage

Lindsay Gianoukas

This presentation assumes that “art thinks no less than philosophy, but it thinks through affects and percepts” (Deleuze and Guattari 1994, 66). Artists do not only think the world, but also necessarily create worlds.

Peau/Pli: A Skype Performance and Its Metamorphoses

Daniel Fetzner, Martin Dornberg

An actor reciting Deleuze and Anzieu and a dancer in a bubble. A delirium of words, electric signals, movements. Criticising and exploring connections, intercorporeality, and processes of embodiment.

Deleuzian Expressionism as an Ontology for Theatre

Zornitsa Dimitrova

This paper addresses the problematic ontology of postdramatic theatre. In particular, it looks at examples of “in-yer-face” productions, such as Sarah Kane’s 4.48 Psychosis and Cleansed, as well as Caryl Churchill’s The Skriker and Far Away. In doing so, it aims to uncover a novel way of positioning the notion of mimesis within the ontological texture of...
