Deleuze and Performance

This chapter explores Gilles Deleuze's Bergsonism and the notion of multiplicity with respect to latitude and longitude, and the relation between the spatial and the temporal in performance. It highlights the complexity of the ordinary and the thickness of the present against narratives of disappearance, or correlative (over-)emphases on virtuality. It suggests that the collaborative performance group Goat Island's ‘creative response’ might also be an apt description of Deleuze's Bergsonism, though it was not a representation of Henri Bergson, so much as a creative interpretation that aims to generate novelty.

Keywords:   Gilles Deleuze, Bergsonism, multiplicity, performance, narratives of disappearance, Goat Island, Henri Bergson
