Hélène Cixous

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter briefly discusses Michel Foucault and presents several epiphanic scenes that help describe the friendship he had with Cixous. It looks at the Groupe Information Prison (GIP), which was an informal group of actors and performers. It also examines the passion of Foucault and his proposition to formulate a theory — or analysis — of performance or acting.

Keywords:   Michel Foucault, epiphanic scenes, Groupe Information Prison, theory of performance
