Performing the Un-Chosen Israeli Body: Nataly Zukerman's Haguf Ha'acher

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Nataly Zukerman "comes out" in this autobiographical performance piece, exposing to the public eye the "invisibility" of her limp; an invisibility imposed on her by a society that insists on downplaying her disability in an attempt to normalize her. Her "other body" is set against not only the universally fabricated image of the privileged able body but also, quite specifically, the idealized, physically fit, heroic Israeli body.
