The Bodies of Others

The Bodies of Others investigates, through a series of close readings of several theatrical and film productions in Europe and South America, the relationship between 'representation' (including theatrical representation) and ethics (defined as an ongoing relational negotiation, as opposed to a set of universal moral laws). The main concepts are exposed through a comparative analysis of historical processes, political actions and artistic works from different periods.

What is home? The answer seems obvious. But Telling Our Stories of Home, an international collection of eleven plays by and about women from Lebanon, Haiti, Venezuela, Uganda, Palestine, Brazil, India, UK, and the US, complicates the answer.
These are voices seldom represented to a larger audience. The plays and performance pieces include a mix of monologue, duologue, and ensemble plays, allowing fantastic performance opportunities particularly in an age of social-distancing with flexible casts that together invite the theme of home to be performed and studied on the page.
