    Beschreibung "This thesis is an analysis of the notion of the virtual as laid out in works by Brian Massumi, Gilles Deleuze, and FĂ©lix Guattari. In it, I explore the virtual across several Chinese films of the last two decades and with respect to different challenges to identity. Through Center Stage, Farewell My Concubine, and Frozen, I investigate the dangers of the virtual in performance and the difficulty in recognizing the line between role and real. I then compare this to the similar yet distinct notion of disguise in House of Flying Daggers and Infernal Affairs in order to demonstrate the different manifestations and effects of the virtual when one's performance is undisclosed to those to whom one plays. Finally, I examine identity and the virtual through cinematic doublings in the films Center Stage and Suzhou River." (Information des Anbieters)
