Goat Island’s Acts of Repair

(p.31) One Wooden Legs
Becoming Past

University of Minnesota Press

The chapter thinks in detail about repair, repetition, and hollowing-out as historical methods, which are discussed in relation to a performance by Goat Island called When will the September roses bloom? Last night was only a comedy. This chapter argues that the group’s work provides alternatives to entrenched historical practices and that its theory of repair can be productively adapted to the task of history.
