Predicaments, dilemmas, and the challenge of knowledge

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article performs a self-inventory about the recursive relationship among theory, the body, and performance studies. It is a provocative call for the recovery of the body. In attempting this recovery, the author articulates the dilemmas and predicaments faced by postcolonial peoples such as myself who try to embody Other kinds of knowledge in the academy. The author concludes the article by proposing that performance studies is the re-constitutive project that can return the body to theory and vice versa.
