Erotics and drama

A few passages in the Dialectic of Enlightenment suggest a concern with the erotic in the work of Critical Theory; Schopenhauer's philosophy also provided the basis for a new conception of sexuality and erotics in the arts. What's more, these underscore the necessity of transgressive eros in the creation of a post-catastrophic art (see especially Laurence Dreyfus' recent work on Wagner). As a playwright I am particularly interested in the role this plays in a written drama preferatory to…See More

As a result of a very rare bodily and intellectual disposition, Gabriella Daris is capable of being a mediator through movement. This is of great importance for the arts and sciences, for education and rehabilitation; because only through movement can the mediation from psyche and body, from mind and body, and from inner world and the environment succeed. One should not put his trust in Nietzsche, who never developed bodily movement, poetic pictures or any stories for that matter. Fairytales, myths and sagas all contain her fascination through the inner emotions of the narrator, and for this reason while reading, like monks wondering, like Aristotle’s students running and above all the changing tempo, this is what one learns, when Gabriella moves. Wonderful!

Prof. Bazon Brock, Art Theorist & Critic, Dada House - Cabaret Voltaire, Zurich, February 18, 2008

Her awakening solo had a stretchy sensuality and linear elegance...Daris made the slow evolution of body sculpture powerfully engaging, her remarkable fluidity creating a kind of undersea lyricism.

Lewis Segal, Los Angeles TIMES, May 28, 2007
