Yes to spectacle.
Yes to virtuosity.
Yes to transformations and magic and make-believe.
Yes to the glamour and transcendency of the star image.
Yes to the heroic.
Yes to the anti-heroic.
Yes to style.
Yes to camp.
Yes to seduction of spectator by the wiles of the performer.
Yes to eccentricity.
Yes to moving or being moved.
Thank you so much Yvonne Rainer.
