Schneider !: Performance is an example of bodies being a form of archive (page 103) Schneider ?: If performance is not permanent and can only be consumed in the moment, how can we analyze performances throughout history? What must we take into account while being so removed from the physical performance? (page 101)

Birns !: “the banality of the present is resistance to the sentimentalities of elegy even as it, in a more exacting way, calls attention to the violence of the past.” (page 19)
Birns ?: When stories are repeated so many times, how are we to know what is factual and what has been embellished? How can we maintain truth in what we share or pass on?
