|Title:||Jacques Lecoq's Bouffons in Australia||Contributor(s):||Everett, Lynn Maree (author)||Publication Date:||2008||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1710||Abstract:||In The Moving Body, Jacques Lecoq describes his explorations into bouffon, a theatrical form that uses body masking to transform actors into grotesque, outcast characters who satirise society. Lecoq researched and developed the form over thirty years, mapping the dramatic territory of the bouffon, searching for its defining characteristics, examining its relationship to other forms, and pondering the limits of its capabilities. One of his 'great discoveries' was the extent to which this work highlighted culturaldifferences between his students, who created bouffonesque bodies that were distinctively embedded in their own cultural background.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australasian Drama Studies, 53(October), p. 168-185||Publisher:||Australasian Drama Studies Association||Place of Publication:||La Trobe University||ISSN:||0810-4123||Field of Research (FOR):||190404 Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.latrobe.edu.au/drama/ads/issue53.html||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 206
