thoughts on Sferic for Radiauteur

radio is 3rd external impetus/agency .... control v. lack of control
element of uncertainty --> probabilistic
control, demands performer attention
absent agent
attempts to choreograph control
embodied objectified uncertainty
observed v. compelled (foucault)
radio brings in outside information --> suggestive of state control, manipulation, agency
origins of information unknown -- connecting performance space to spaces far away, spaces close by, spaces unknown
practice element -->can you ever abdicate control over the body
mini phenomena
performing absence, quiet, meditation
watching v. initiation
body response
there is no time
surrender of mind into movement
