Skeleton Consciousness and Theatre

Kristin Fredricksson

This presentation will focus on what it means to have a skeleton and what it means for the practice of theatre. The question of skeletal awareness goes beyond developing ease and spontaneity as performers. Bones are potential objects that lie in wait within people - to which death will bring object birth. In the meantime, they can be used as teachers of performance skills, in a similar way to puppets and objects and the ground. I ask how considerations of the skeleton in performance can provide a route towards the disintegration of binarized categories of animate-inanimate and subject-object, such that performance as physical philosophy can become the site of a lived ethics.
