“But the other side of its Becoming, History, is a conscious, self-meditation process…” – Georg Wilhem Friedrich Hegel
“[Mimes shooting herself through her right temple with brains splattering out the left, cutting her wrists with fountains of blood spritzing out, glug-glug-glugging a bottle of arsenic, throwing a noose over a rafter, trying to hang herself and falling to the floor because the rope breaks, rolling her eyes because Georgie here bought the cheap rope again]” – Brunhilda Hegel, founder of the physical improv troupe The Rib Nudgers
