This chapter explores the notion of territory in the works of both Gilles Deleuze and Martin Heidegger. It examines whether race and its minor theatre want a dwelling place and investigates whether there is a political potential within the body without organs (BWO) which offers a resistance to the homely conception of dwelling. It provides a contextualisation of this future theatre in the Deleuzo-Guattarian project of minor literature as a whole and questions the practicality of the schizo-stroll and the BWO. It also discusses the notion of Heideggerian deterritorialisation.

Keywords: territory; Gilles Deleuze; Martin Heidegger; minor theatre; body without organs; dwelling; minor literature; schizo-stroll; Heideggerian deterritorialisation
