[Action] V - Tous Les DeuxPremier: 06.02.2009 Duration: 50 minutes
Action (Praxi) is unpredictable and irreversible. Against these two frailties, humans have found two solutions: promising and forgiveness.
…The dream, then, is to get beyond not only the number one – the number that determines unity, of body or of self – but also beyond the number two, which determines difference, antagonism, and exchange conceived of as merely the coming together of opposites. That this dream is perhaps impossible is suggested. Its power remains, however, because the desire it embodies is a desire for both endless complication and creative movement.
Susan Rubin Suleiman
