“The life of the ‘Object’ – the substance of the performance”

“The substance of the performance was created by the “inner life” of the OBJECT, by its properties, destiny and imaginative scope. The actors became its living organs, linked to it as if genetically. They constituted an active BIO-OBJECT, producing the tissue of action of a special kind: amorphous (I called it “informelle”) or mechanical. Without the actors, the object was a devastated wreck unable to act. On the other hand, the actors were conditioned by it; their roles and actions originated from it.”

Kantor, Tadeusz. Wielopole, Wielopole. Kraków-Wrocław: Wydawnictwo Literackie, 1990, p. 133.
