BODIES ON THE GEARS

VOLUME 49, NUMBER 3

Current Issue

In our latest issue (49.3), Bodies on the Gears, now online, artists and authors ask how bodies on stage can arrest the grinding “gears” of society. Editor Tom Sellar poses the question this way in his introduction: “Could live arts hold special potential…as rigorously imagined convening of micro-utopias?” ”Bodies on the Gears” features five original lecture-performances commissioned by Theater and presented live at the 2019 American Realness festival: Noah Fischer’s <Performance Breakthrough 2036>, Nana Adusei-Poku’s <Das N-Baby Und Ihre Puppe Afrika>, Karyn Recollet’s <Choreographies of the Fall>, madison moore’s <Unapologetic Femme>, and Jackson Polys’ <Manifest X>.
