Text and the Dancing Body: Rose English and Laurie Anderson
University of Surrey
An analysis of the work of Rose English and Laurie Anderson as female 'performance writers' - artists who write and perform their own work. Particular attention is paid to the dancing body as used in each artists' performance practice, and how playful use of corporeality marks progressive performance / writing spaces.
