Children In The Mire: A Reading Of Bangs, Marcus And The Sex Pistols, part 1

Michael Baker, Perfect Sound Forever, January 2005

"THE DOMAIN OF the theater is not psychological but plastic and physical. And it is not a question of whether the physical language of theater is capable of achieving the same psychological resolutions as the language of words, whether it is able to express feelings and passions as well as words, but whether there are not attitudes in the realm of thought and intelligence that words are incapable of grasping and that gestures...and a spatial language attain with more precision."
Artaud, The Theater and Its Double
