Thinking Through Theatre

Thinking Through Theatre

(p.147) Chapter 8 Thinking Through Theatre
Deleuze and Performance

Maaike Bleeker

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter explores the relationship between theatre and thinking through a confrontation of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's philosophical staging of thinking with Ivana Müller's theatrical staging of thinking in How Heavy Are My Thoughts? It explains that Müller's lecture performance reports her attempts to find an answer to the question concerning the mind/body dualism. It argues that Deleuze and Guattari did not mention theatre in their work, their account of thinking suggests the possibility of conceiving of theatre in terms of thinking.

Keywords:   theatre, thinking, Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, Ivana Müller, How Heavy Are My Thoughts?, lecture performance, mind/body dualism
