“Invited at the same time by the Hebbel Theatre in Berlin, the Tanz-Quartier in Vienna and the Centre National de la Danse in Paris to perform The Last Performance (D0624) I decided, instead of presenting the piece, to make a lecture about its issues. I had the feeling that this difficult piece had not been really understood. Maybe the piece was bad. But I believe that the issues of this piece were relevant, which is why I would like to change my medium and to use the tool of the lecture to try to articulate better the stakes of The Last Performance. I will re-contextualise the piece in its theoretical level through the texts of Roland Barthes and Peggy Phelan and in my artistic situation at that time.”Jérôme Bel www.jeromebel.fr This documentation has since been presented with the permission of the artist as part of the Performance Matters, Performing Idea, Performance Lecture Archive; an interactive video archive housed at the Whitechapel Gallery between 2-9 October 2010. The archive looked at examples of the performance lecture as a form of artistic and critical expression and its potential to address a broad range of cultural issues and philosophical ideas.
