Corpus Delecti: Performance Art of the Americas

Corpus Delecti: Performance Art of the Americas Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Corpus Delecti is the most comprehensive volume on performance art from the Americas to appear in English. Here you will find an unusually wide-ranging collection of historical and critical studies of Latin performance. Drawing on live art from the 1960s to the present, this unique collection explores the impact of Latin American politics, popular culture and syncretic religions on Latin performance.<P>Many varieties of art are discussed, including: body art; carpa; vaudeville; staged political protest; tropicalist musical comedies; contemporary Venezuelan performance art; the Chicano art movement; and queer Latino performance. The essays demonstrate how specific social and historical contexts have shaped Latin American performance, and how those factors have affected the choices artists make as to how their works draw upon and respond to their environment.

Synopsis:
