New sensuality

New Sensuality explores poetry within the production of a-logical discourses, which not only subvert the dominant network of signifiers and power, but also enables one to “think” outside that order. In addition to offering theoretical justification for avant-garde practices such as Artaud’s Theatre of Cruelty, New Sensuality also proposes a philosophical challenge by other means. One of the key tenets of 20th century theatre is revolt against the “tyranny of text.” I argue the same is needed for philosophy. While there have been a number of such projects (mysticism, Nietzsche’s poetical writings, Žižek’s use of paradoxes, ...), all were rooted in an intuitive need for expression stemming from an inadequacy of language, rather than critical reflection. Accordingly, New Sensuality is an exploration of media in which the critical impetus is primarily produced by sensual experiences.
