My production uses the cut-up method and repetition to approach the processual virality of language, especially as it pertains to the metaphysics of writing. The production focuses on writing as a creative, inventive act, an act of God (“blasphemously”)—thus also a walk with the Beast. Writing as he(u)retics, a virus: mutating, spreading, contagious. The instruction can be found in the process and reproduction of writing as the meaningful construction of time and space, of “being” as such. Both a black hole and the field in which lightning always strikes twice in the same place, writing never leaves the priority of metaphysics.
