A non fiction book by Geraldine Harris
This work focuses on the work of performance artists Rose English, Bobby Baker, and Annie Sprinkle as a means of explicating and examining some of the most influential thinking on the politics of identity produced in the 1980s and 1990s. This book examines the productive differences between British and North American female performance traditions, between feminist theories of performance practices and, most significantly, between theatrical performance and expression. After detailing the various theatrical contexts in which those performance techniques under examination can be said to occur, this work offers a number of alternative readings of the way identity is staged. Undertaking a series of "double movements" this book brings together concepts from theorists and critics that include: Judith Butler, Susan Bordo, Jacques Derrida, Julia Kristeva, Joan Riviere, Jean Baudrillard, Jacques Lacan, Michel de Certeau, Luce Irigaray, Bertold Brecht, Antonin Artaud and Eleanor Fuchs.
