Fysisk beskrivning [en]

Book

Fritextbeskrivning [en]

The book offers a psychoanalytic account of the practice of contemporary circus. It evolves its narrative through three voices: dramatic address (love poems from a disaffected, retired artist to the public), memoir in verse (a genealogy of becoming a circus artist) and psychoanalytic theory written through the lens of personal experience as a circus artist, pedagogue, director and psychoanalytic scholar.

It offers the benefit of a subject/artist embedded in the theory, showing how the artist comes to theory from their own contexts – social, gendered, sexualized and racialized – and how theory helps the artist contextualize themselves in the field. The theoretical perspectives draw from Freud via Lacan but touches upon Winnicot, Klein and Kristeva.

Abstract [en]

Sex, death, seduction, trauma and an intimate yet distanced relationship to an amorous other: circus and psychoanalysis have much in common. This book looks to the story circus tells when it is on the couch; a love story of impossible desires, improbable fantasies deeply indebted to masochism and utopian longing. However, trapped as it is in its conservative and narcissistic aesthetics of infatuation – stunning, erotic and impressive – its queer core of anti-normative and anarchic desire has been co-opted as the poster-child for neoliberal success. This work looks to its fundamental and disavowed romance with failure to show how progressive its thinking could be.
