|Title:||The Performance of War Images|
|Abstract:||This paper addresses the use of the body in post-9/11 performances of Japanese performance company Gekidan Kaitaisha in correlation with the continuing War on Terror campaign, and the ‘culture of protest’ in theatrical performance. It focuses on the performative effect of certain images and events during the on-going War on Terror, and the way the use of a burqa, US military footage, and choreographic impact in Kaitaisha has responded/coincided with/signaled events. How do Kaitaisha go beyond the effect of the (un)spectacular image? What particular alternatives do their performances reflect?|
