(p.71) Chapter 4 A Theatre of Subtractive Extinction: Bene Without Deleuze
Deleuze and Performance

Lorenzo Chiesa

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines the relevance of Gilles Deleuze's work for the works of Italian director Carmelo Bene. It argues that Deleuze's One Less Manifesto conceived the theatre of continuous variation, particularly Bene's theatre, as one that is initiated and sustained by subtraction. It also questions the compatibility of Deleuze's vitalist concept of subtraction with Bene's own concept of the subtractive.

Keywords:   Gilles Deleuze, Carmelo Bene, One Less Manifesto, theatre, subtraction, vitalist concept
