Derrida | Benjamin – Two Plays for the Stage

Derrida | Benjamin – Two Plays for the Stage

New publication: Derrida| Benjamin - Two Plays for the Stage by John Schad and Fred Dalmasso (the first-ever stage plays about Jacques Derrida and Walter Benjamin) Within the work of both Jacques Derrida and Walter Benjamin there is a buried theatricality, a theatre to-come. And, in the last fifteen years, there has been a growing awareness of this theatricality. To date, though, there has not been a published stage play about either Derrida or Benjamin. Cue Derrida| Benjamin, a volume that brings together two tragi-comic plays which mirror each other in a host of ways – above all, in the…

PP Book Chain: Routledge Companion to Performance Philosophy

The Routledge Companion to Performance Philosophy  PP Book Chain We are really excited to see the publication of the Routledge Companion to Performance Philosophy.

HOW NOT TO MISS THE ‘MISSING’ IN THE UNIVERSE AROUND US

(Fig. i)* Smolded through ages, as a lifeless form Colorful but yet chaotic Born but yet symbiotic Caged in green lush, as a unique uniform At the stroke of creator's fulgaration Morbid smolder of chalk pours Over the meadow of mountain in scores As if planted in time, through curator’s dilation Lets take an example.
