This chapter focuses on Gilles Deleuze's concept of body without organs (BWO), the Deleuzian idea which resonates most powerfully as a concept for and of performance. It provides a detailed retelling of the radio program To have done with the judgement of God, from which Deleuze borrowed the notion of BWO, and suggests that this work and Antonin Artaud's oeuvre as a whole, should not be interpreted as merely symptomatic of schizophrenic experience. It contends that Artaud actively develops a glossolalia beyond everyday language in order to destratify the bodies of his listeners.

Keywords:   body without organs, Gilles Deleuze, performance, To have done with the judgement of God, Antonin Artaud, schizophrenic experience, glossolalia
