The theatre of the virtual
how to stage potentialities with Merleau-Ponty
Richard Schechner, the founder of the 1960s New York avant-garde Performance Group, considered that the performer need only bear one thing in mind if he wanted to overcome the theatrical (i.e. instrumental, representational) mode in which performance had been entangled for so long. This sole thing was: "Your body is not your "instrument," your body is you."1
