About This Book
On Repetitionaims to unpack the different uses and functions of repetition within contemporary performance, dance practices, craft and writing. The collection, edited by Eirini Kartsaki, explores repetition in relation to intimacy, laughter, technology, familiarity and fear – proposing a new vocabulary for understanding what is at stake in works that repeat. Drawing on psychoanalysis, philosophy, linguistics, sociology and performance studies –and employing case studies from a range of practices–the essays presented here combine to form a unique interdisciplinary exploration of the functions of repetition in contemporary culture.
