Dramaturgy of attention. From absorption to distance, being implicated in the events of other people’s imagination

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter exposes my fragmented investigation of the structure of imagination in relation to variation of proximity and in relation to social forms. It presents the argument for documentation as performance and for the act of reading as an exercise of our imagination. By means of collages and insertions of choreographic practices for the page, I introduce the thought that the act of reading merged with the collective act of attending a performance might lead to a bridge to other’s imaginations.
