Abstract

With the emergence and development of the cinema as art, a definition of corporeality was attributed with a new sense. Cinema as an art type is programmed towards interactions with corporeality. Performance researchers, Fisher-Liсhte in particular, consider it significant to implement something or transform something towards a corporal practice. Such an example may be exchange of energy during a theatrical
performance, in the course of an active interaction between actors. In the paper the performative aspects of corporeality are studied in details, Ivan’s Death and Natalka’s Wailing episodes in particular. It is concluded that in Dovzhenko’s view, the body is beautiful despite age (a close-up of the old man whose face is shining like the face of a saint), sex or a social role. Oleksandr Dovzhenko’s findings as the director and Danylo Demuztsky’s work as the photography director reflect the performative features of corporeality and influence its understanding by the public. In La Terra, common things get sacral meaning, spirituality
is perceived through the body aspect.
