Chant du corps interdit: The theatre of Hélène Cixous
In this chapter, I would like to establish that Hélène Cixous developed a form of theatre that performed the enmeshing of writer and writing - the embodiment of text, the textualization of body - in the space of the voice. Some consideration of her theoretical writings will pave the way for a discussion of her theatre.
Echo's Voice: The Theatres of Sarraute, Duras, Cixous and Renaude was shortlisted for the 2015 David Bradby Award for Research in International Theatre and Performance, which is awarded for the best book of its year by TaPRA, the Theatre and Performance Research Association.
