A Ritual Resuscitation of Eternal Lovers is a text-based performance designed for two voluntary readers who have never encountered the text before.
People often think of determinism as an inhibitor of freedom, or agency. Actually, determinism is not incompatible with the possibility of freedom (Dennett, 2003). This performance is an attempt to script for the agencies of the two fictional lovers, Rosa and Lawrence. The videos on this page show some of the public performances of the work, but the work is experienced in different ways in different contexts.
