W]e are informed that performance, in only one of its many paradoxes, can deconstruct Presence utterly, and empower Absence or powerlessness. Since it is activated by non periodic, nonlinear activities-improvisation, play, transformation, parataxis, game structures-perfomance breaks down the illusion of rational control and power over meaning (and the structural metaphor of argument underlying the text), and substitutes a dispersal of order into disorganization. - Michael Vanden Heuvel,doi:10.5195/reviberoamer.2001.5875 fatcat:m335nsbhl5cl3lhynuulzcsp24
