Each performance is haphazardly crowbarred into its site and context − rejigged, added to, undone and perverted. We are in the future looking back on the traumatic incident that occurred right here, in this space, during Daniel’s show. Returning to the site to partially reconstruct the tragic performance, to discuss blame,…
