Helen Paris: "Performing Proximity"
Reading from her co-authored book, Performing Proximity: Curious Intimacies, TAPS Associate Professor Helen Paris discusses ‘looking at being-looked-at-ness’ and how proximity can change the nature of relationships between audience and performer. For this Clayman Fellows talk, Paris considers some ways in which proximity in performance speaks to gender, both through the return of the audience’s gaze and through the employment of the senses.
