“Memory is not an instrument for exploring the past but its theatre. It is the medium of past experience, as the ground is the medium in which dead cities lie interred.” —

Memory is not an instrument for exploring the past but its theatre.

It is the medium of past experience, as the ground is the medium in which dead cities lie interred.

“The Theatre which is in no thing, but makes use of everything – gestures, sounds, words, screams, light, darkness – rediscovers itself at precisely the point where the mind requires a language to express its manifestations. To break through language in order to touch life is to create or recreate the theatre.” — Antonin Artaud, The Theatre and its Double
