“Subject” and “Object”

Is the dancer a “Subject” or an “Object”?

“Subjects” experience, interpret, feel, act, matter.  Film, photography, art, or literature can emphasize the subjectivity of some characters, not others.

“Objects” are seen or portrayed only in the light of others’ experience, and their position as feeling and acting is de-emphasized.

Often, in orientalizing literature, dancers (or the East in general) are portrayed as objects, having significance only in the light of the experiences of those who encounter them.
