Thank you for the information. I am not using it for performance but rather applying it to speaking about the body within the frame of video/cinema.

Barthes talks about the location, or lack of location of the body writing
in "Death of the Author". But I think you'd be hard pressed to transpose
this into movement and/or performance (then again, maybe not...)

If that's not the context you're looking for, try Mythologies, "Le monde o
l'on catche"

I hope this helps,
