Embodied Elasticity: Boxing Bodies and Resistance

Allbwn ymchwil: Cyfraniad at gynhadleddPapuradolygiad gan gymheiriaid


Notions of elasticity are central to the sport of boxing. Boxing bodies extend outwards to encounter and test resistance, springing and bouncing back in rhythmic patterns. We argue that boxers are in search of the perfect amount of elasticity and resistance. Boxing is supported by narratives that herald the transformative potential of the sport. By repetitively encountering resistance, boxers engage in transformative practices. These practices serve as a form of embodied elasticity. Crews and co-presenter Solomon Lennox respond to their practice-research project on boxing. They present their findings, focusing on their relationship with the material elasticity
of boxing.
