This chapter address the value of Deleuzian ideas for performance. It attempts to establish the connection of Gilles Deleuze's works with various practitioners including Bertolt Brecht, the Living Theatre, and the KRAKEN Group. It analyses Deleuze and Félix Guattari's Anti-Oedipus and suggests that Deleuze considers performance as the autoerotic on automatic in runaway machines, given over to pure expenditure in the libidinal economy.
