An awareness of the different forces of performance is vital to how one thinks about difference and the creation of something new. Current understandings of social transformation often see performative action as something created through discursive reiteration. Yet non-linguistic experiences, such as emotions, the movement of bodies and connection with others, might also generate new visions and forms of being together (Massumi 2002a). Chapter 3 takes up this line of inquiry by examining the World Social Forum.
