(p.54) Chapter 3 Expression and Affect in Kleist, Beckett and Deleuze
Deleuze and Performance

Anthony Uhlmann

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines the concepts of expression and affect in the works of Heinrich von Kleist, Samuel Beckett, and Gilles Deleuze. It suggests that Kleist, Beckett, and Edward Gordon-Craig belong a minor tradition of acting and explains that this minor tradition is one that aims to create a theatre which moves away from the inner world of an actor in favour of developing affects which express an external composite world. It also analyses Kleist's short story ‘On the Marionette Theatre’ and Deleuze's Expressionism in Philosophy: Spinoza.

Keywords:   expression, affect, Heinrich von Kleist, Samuel Beckett, Gilles Deleuze, Edward Gordon-Craig, acting, theatre, On the Marionette Theatre, Expressionism in Philosophy
