Title: Introduction -- Bodily Performance: On Aura and Reproducibility

Abstract: The author discusses Walter Benjamin's concepts of art & authenticity, arguing that the aura of dance can never be fully subordinated to modern techniques of reproduction. Dance is a text that has a national script -- ballet in China is different from modern dance in the United States, & it is also a gendered form. Nevertheless, Benjamin's aesthetics finds their most compelling realization in the presence of the aura of a moving body. D. Knaff.
