Synopsis

Proposing a new source for political impulse in the West, this volume seeks to re-embody the political subject, arguing that when the mind has been dominated by mass communication as in Western capitalism the body emerges as a site of opposition. An explication of the making of a modern dance and a comparison of Soviet and American political theatre are linked by a sustained discussion that critiques semiotic and phenomenological approaches to the body and outlines a body politics.
