Queer Dance

Julian B. Carter

Oxford University Press

This chapter puts Jerome Bel’s 2004 dance Veronique Doisneau in conversation with recent critical work on re-enactment to explore the complex temporal politics that emerge when postmodern dance draws on and restages classical forms. The chapter describes how such restaging can make time fold and pleat around dancing bodies and their audiences, soliciting embodied participation in the power structures of both past and present.

Keywords:   Jerome Bel, re-enactment, Veronique Doisneau, Swan Lake, ballet
