In September 1968, Karl Weill stated:
What is the performative tactic if it is not a calculated assault on the audience? It is forbidden to forbid. I want you to imagine, for a moment, an audience who are not entertained. I am walking backwards. Ennui. The slow rustling of a paper bag. Talking. A man swears. The crowd breaks out in laughter. Voices hecklingâ¦â¦the audience falls silent. A fear of engulfment precedes attack. The shouting then begins. Intervention. All the while, my back is turned(1).
