Dangerous Moves : Performance and Politics in Cuba

Publication | 2015

In this exploration of performance and cultural politics in post-revolutionary Cuba, Fusco analyzes the dynamics between artists and the state, focusing on the ways that performance has served as a favored means of social commentary. The study covers a range of performative practices in art, music, poetry and political activism. Fusco examines the relationship between the abject body in performance and the greater body politic of a state that defines itself as revolutionary but seeks to limit dissent.
