(26-08-2015)

Issues 6 and 7 of AGent. New Theses in Performance Research have been publishedIn vol. 6, Suzanne Knip-Mooij constructs an alternative and original way of engaging with performances (Tian Rotteveel, Giorgia Andreotta Calò, Boris Charmatz) through the concept of Gelassenheit ("Gelatenheid"), drawing on Heidegger, Gerard Visser and Meister Eckhart. In vol. 7, Jonas Rutgeerts offers a comparative study between historical re-enactments and re-enactments of dance performances. Analysing the underlying strategies through which both engage with the past, the book offers new perspectives on the phenomenon of re-enactment. AGent is edited by Katharina Pewny and Kati Röttger.
