Description
Summary:The years of the Argentine democratic opening are characterized by the deployment of a heterogeneity of experiences of performances and forms of theatricality in various centers of the Buenos Aires counterculture, which share as a distinctive aspect the interest in experimenting with corporeality. The experiences of those years renew the exploratory climate of the 1960s, which both locally and internationally gave importance to performance as a mode of artistic expression and recovered avant-garde concerns of the early twentieth century. The New York neo-avant-garde of that time is a landmark in the performative turn in the arts and the importance given to the body as a support for performances. This text addresses the role of corporeality in the performances and forms of theatricality emerging in the post-dictatorship 80s, connecting the study of this context with that of aspects of the 60s aesthetic-political context.
