Yvonne Rainer

  1.  No Manifesto

    NO to spectacle.
    No to virtuosity.
    No to transformations and magic and make-believe.
    No to the glamour and transcendency of the star image.
    No to the heroic.
    No to the anti-heroic.
    No to trash imagery.
    No to involvement of performer or spectator,
    No to style.
    No to camp.
    No to seduction of spectator by the wiles of the performer.
    No to eccentricity.
    No to moving or being moved.
