Symposium

What does it mean to show or be a different body on stage, on a city street, in bed with another? Can disability become an extravagance and difference alluring?

Contemporary debates around issues of identity and representation cannot be elaborated without the acknowledgment of disability, of the extrava- gant body. The critical elements the following contributions highlight are all an integral part of examining the materiality of the body, its representation and society’s stumble on the rouged terrain of disability. The implied step in the direction of addressing the relation of disability and politics, becomes a fundamental move for cultural and social change — regardless if those changes manifest themselves on the stage, in galleries, cinemas or in the streets.
