Excess / Passage: From the Affective and Athletic Body, the Naked Body, to the Body as Gift

By Tsu-Chung Su
REAL: Review of English and American Literature [Yingmei wenxue pinglun]

The presentation of the naked body in the theatre is often linked with and propagated by sexual liberation. While redrawing the boundaries of nudity in the performance,  the production of Dionysus in 69 redefines the relationship between the audience and the performers and distinguishes the singularity of sensory experiences.  In addition, the paper draws on Grotowski’s notion of “total act” to illustrate the idea of the body as gift. It focuses on examining the way Grotowski impacts and inspires Schechner and his Performance Group and it explores how the notion of the “body as gift” is played
out in the production of Dionysus in 69.
