Book DescriptionThrough an analysis of various disabled performance artists and companies, this book investigates core issues affecting both "everyday" and "art-framed" performances. Disability and Contemporary Performance addresses performances as social and cultural interventions, and as acts on the edges of representational categories and embodied presence. Disabled performers challenge established aesthetic norms everytime they enter the public domain.
