The Woven Body: Embodying Text in Performance Art and the Writing Center
Rifenburg, J. Michael; Allgood, Lindsey
Across the Disciplines, v12 n4 Dec 2015
Drawing on Lindsey Allgood's scripts, journal entries, and images of a specific participatory performance piece she executed, we argue for seeing performance art as a form of embodied text. Such an assertion is particularly pertinent for postsecondary writing center praxis as it allows for the mindful intersections of the body and writing during the tutoring process, intersections harder to realize without a background in performance practices that rely on the body as primary tool of meaning making.
