The Urban Bodygraphy

ABSTRACT

This article explores the concept of hybrid drama produced in the heavy flow of the performative body with/the/in the city. Based on some recent readings on the body and its dramaturgy, it tries to analyze those stage productions which, supported by this body-city-performativity triad, aim to promote the meeting of the actor-performer with the city, triggering new possibilities of intervention in this public space. The Corpografias {bodygraphies} that unfold within the clash between the performer, bystanders, and the environment is a privileged locus for a discussion about the pedagogical and political dimension of this work.
