Professor Ramsay Burt from the Department of Performance and Digital Arts from De Montefort University will deliver a paper on the afternoon. Here is the abstract of his presentation:

Yvonne Rainer and the problem of ‘the dancing body’.

The title of Yvonne Rainer’s 1968 piece The Mind Is A Muscle implicitly challenges Cartesian dualism – the idea that the mind is separate from the body like a ghost in a machine. The revolution, that Rainer and her fellow dance artists at Judson Dance Theater initiated, drew attention towards what the unadorned body is capable of doing. It did this by valuing ordinary, everyday actions rather than ones that drew on technical skill and virtuosity in order to evoke something poetic or metaphysical. This has led to a situation in the 2000s where dance artists and scholars often speak of ‘the dancing body’ in a way that is anti-Cartesian but still dualistic. It is sometimes implied that the body knows best what to do and the mind needs to let go and stop interfering.  In a little known article written for Arts Magazine in 1967, Rainer writes about her embodied response to the minimalist sculptures of Robert Morris. By critically evaluating Rainer’s article, this presentation considers what insights it offers into Rainer’s own choreographic concerns during this period. In doing so, it aims to show the extent to which Rainer, at this time, was thinking about embodied experience in ways that offer an alternative to dualistic ways of thinking. Her article, it argues, offers a corrective to a tendency talk about ‘the dancing body’ Adult Marketing.
