The Sentient Archive

Bodies, Performance, and Memory

The Sentient Archive gathers the work of scholars and practitioners in dance, performance, science, and the visual arts. Its twenty-eight rich and challenging essays cross boundaries within and between disciplines, and illustrate how the body serves as a repository for knowledge. Contributors include Nancy Goldner, Marcia B. Siegel, Jenn Joy, Alain Platel, Catherine J. Stevens, Meg Stuart, André Lepecki, Ralph Lemon, and other notable scholars and artists.


Hardcover is un-jacketed.

Review

“...the collection challenges and provokes thought about the nature of lived experiences, how they influence and mold one is (in the present and future), and how memories are retrieved.”—E. McPherson, Choice Magazine

Endorsement

"This volume presents a marvelous and diverse group of thinkers who, as artists and scholars, are reckoning with the dancing body as a site of knowing, remembering, and performing. Their comments yield deep insights into the nature of physicality and also the rich possibilities for writing about dance." —Susan Leigh Foster, distinguished professor in the department of world arts and cultures/dance at UCLA

"The Sentient Archive summons a feast of diverse voices, giving each the space to speak without forcing them into a single chorus. Instead, the book works like a landscape where these voices and their shimmering echoes intersect, inviting us in to join the unfinished, disappearing dance of movement and memory, of the sentient body and its archival impulse, its fragile yet insistent resistance to the slippage of time. Collectively, these voices testify to the whispers and the wild feelings in our bones that can hardly be put into words, but bear our social flesh forward." —Elizabeth A. Behnke, Study Project in Phenomenology of the Body
