Sample text

As Juris highlights, some groups may operate a mass media oriented strategy that explicitly relies on performance for achieving visibility. For Juris, as for Flynn and Baron Cohen, many of the participants and activists with whom these authors have worked consciously reflect upon the performative, aesthetic, and ‘practical’ dimensions of their performances. How these reflections are premised within wider, collective notions of protest tactics is a key contribution of this section. The second section of Part 1, entitled ‘Development and Governance’ opens with Jane Plastow’s chapter, which, seeking to move away from TfD and toward experiential learning through development/image theatre, combines ethnographic analysis with an illustration of the use of performance in developing contexts.

From an ethnography of N’drangheta mafia dancing, Pipyrou argues that whilst such affective fields of cultural politics as performance may be considered marginal in mainstream development discourse, they are entirely intrinsic to the wider processes upon which such a discourse is premised. Having trained as a dancer herself, Pipyrou’s chapter resonates with the emphasis on the body that is made by several other authors in the book. Pipyrou’s concept of ‘embodied observation’ furthers the ongoing debate in all of the chapters as to the lines between researcher and participant, which itself hints at the use of performance as a research method, a subject that is addressed in the second part of this book by Caroline Gatt and Nicholas Long.
