dc.description.abstract In this essay, I wish to open up some questions and speculations about recent theoretical paradigms of sexuality, and their points of contact with various elements of theatricality. In so doing, I hope to confirm and extend recent observations about the characteristic theatricality of the specifically sexual aspect of the human imagination and consciousness; and also to suggest how the theatre, in its differing forms, is a particularly informative analytic manifestation (and manifestation for analysis) of the (often contradictory) human imaginative impulses associated with the dynamics of eroticism: the extrapolations of the imagination, the reflexive self-consciousness, the interrogation and suspension of notional ¿reality¿, the dialectic of presence and absence (and proximity and distance), and the stretching and challenging of time (1). Thus I might offer a first step towards identifying an erotic dynamic at work in theatrical performance and spectating. en
