Theatre in Absentia" and Negative Theology Details Type journal article Title "Theatre in Absentia" and Negative Theology: The "Theatre That May or May Not Be Theatre" of Implied Violence Contributor(s) Chambers, Claire (author)(editor)(translator) Located In Performance and Spirituality ISSN 2157-4049 Volume 2 Issue 1 Date 2011 Use/Reproduction In Copyright Abstract This paper offers three readings of the experimental performance of Implied Violence, which traffics in refusal, abjection, Otherness, and the possibility of non-being. Chambers places these readings in conversation with three different medieval negative theologians: Meister Eckhart, Hildegarde von Bingen, and Marguerite Porete. Through this exploration, Chambers draws out the parallels between apophatic spirituality and performance that Chambers calls the "theatre in absentia."
