BE AN INSIDER
Perfect is the enemy of good - Voltaire
“I am going through hard times: in the shadow of real recent converging, passing, pressing, milling, swarming, pulsing, changing in the country, formalized choreographic gestures seem trivial.
In recent performances I have allowed for elements to emerge that pertain to actual ways in which we engage with each other. But like any group we will lose our vitality if these “engagements” remain on the level of fun and games.
I am not interested in group therapy as performance, but I am still interested in performance.
I experience a strong sense of risk when I think about what lies ahead. I never did before. My conditioning—with its powerful imperative of history, ambition, imagination, quality, and control—lurks in my peripheral vision.
Maybe fuck it.”
Yvonne Rainer, “Information,” Statement in Catalogue, MoMA, 1970.
