Mémoire et transmissions

des œuvres performatives et chorégraphiques contemporaines

Les presses du réel, 544 pages, Anne Bénichou (éd.)

As ephemeral artistic practices that engage the performer’s body in the presence of an audience, performance art and contemporary dance call upon modes of transmission emerging at once from the archive and from oral and corporeal memory.

The papers in this book explore approaches for remembering and reviving. Reenactments are addressed as ” the performed archive” which rely on the reverberations between documents, bodies, scripts, and stories of experiences. Documentation can be the engine for creation, generating multiple reactivations through exhibitions, performances, and websites. The authors of this book – practitioners and theorists alike, interested in Québécois, French and American dance and performance milieus, reflect on these nuanced relationships that can keep the performative experience alive as part of our cultural collective memory

Essays by: Clarisse Bardiot, Anne Bénichou, Yves Bergeron, Marc Boivin, Elsa Bourdot, Ginelle Chagnon, Mario Côté, The Two Gullivers (Flutura Preka et Besnik Haxhillari), Amélie Giguère, Amelia Jones, Isabelle Launay, Catherine Lavoie-Marcus, André Lepecki, Babette Mangolte, Sylvie Mokhtari, Jacques Perron, Isabelle Poirier, Céline Roux, Theresa Rowat, Michèle Rust, Jessica Santone, Noémie Solomon, Ming Tiampo.
