Abstract

The future of performance consists of the complexity of an unknown guaranteed rather than the simplicity of a success or failure. This article offers a critique of failure in contemporary performance theory through the philosopher Henri Bergson’s writings on disorder and the art practice of Janez Janša. When the future is considered as an unknown guaranteed, it becomes possible to invent life in the same way that art is created.
