A Strange Proximity : Stage Presence, Failure, and the Ethics of Attention Hardback
What happens in the relationship between audience and performer?
Whatchoices are made in the space of performance about how we attend toothers?A Strange Proximity examines stage presence as key to thinking aboutperformance and ethics.
It is the first phenomenological account of ethicsgenerated from, rather than applied to, contemporary theatrical productions. The ethical possibilities of the stage, argues Jon Foley Sherman, rest notso much in its objects-the performers and the show itself-as in the "how"of attending to others.
A Strange Proximity is a unique perspective on theimplications of attention in performance.
