Dancing with your cycle: theatre and performance research as archivist practice

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

This chapter deals with the notion of archivist practice as experienced in contemporary theatre and performance research, where the nomadic dramaturg with a Nordic view both revisits performances and sees tendencies reappear in the theatre landscape. The Norwegian professor Knut Ove Arntzen combines personal experience with geo-cultural contextualisation, but surfing in international theatre landscapes does not mean that deep-going perspectives would disappear. This statement is in itself ironically striking since the loss of paradoxes in postmodern re-cycling presumably links to the disappearance of a historical contextualisation. However, the gaps in this performance landscape allow for the notion of the closure and the opening of a world perception.
