Performing The Historical Body

(A) Performance Group and The Performance Research Hub Presents:
Performing The Historical Body
Bridget Escolme, Queen Mary, University Of London

This session examines the ways in which play texts and conditions of theatre production encode and interrogate constructions of the body in history. Participants will work on scenes from Hamlet and Much Ado About Nothing (William Shakespeare), Sweet Lavender (Arthur Wing Pinero) and 4.48 Psychosis (Sarah Kane), to explore the gendering of the suffering body in the early modern drama, the Victorian melodrama and in recent ‘post-dramatic’ theatre. Research questions around dramaturgy, staging convention, theatre architecture and costume will be amongst those that emerge from this practical theatre workshop. Texts to be read and performed in the session can be made available in advance.

This event is a collaboration between CCW Graduate School and London College of Fashion.
