The inaugural production of Performance Corporation in 2002 matched
Voltaire's withering assault against the doctrine of optimism with a playful aesthetic
and endlessly inventive stagecraft. Each play in this collection was originally staged
by the Performance Corporation and though Swift has explored different avenues ever since, such playfulness is a constant.
The writing is precise, but leaves room for the discoveries of rehearsals, the flesh of the theatre.
All plays are blueprints for performance, but several of these scripts
– many of which are site-specific and all of them slyly topical – are documents for something unrepeatable.
