Date of Defense 2003-06-01 Availability restricted AbstractBob Fosse’s choreography endows women with agency and self-confidence. He explores female sexuality and empowers women through his use of androgyny, glamour, fetishism, and the urban aesthetic. In his stage and film choreographic structures, Fosse
cedes independence to women giving female performers and female viewers a chance to
celebrate power without sacrificing their femininity. The most compelling aspect of his
work is the appreciation of feminine traits combined with the appropriation of fetishized
objects that give women authority. Unlike more traditional schools of feminist and male
gaze theory, which consider emphasis on female sexual display an necessarily exploitative and objectifying, “glam-femme” theory asserts that women are empowered through glorification of glamour and the sex appeal associated with it.
