My early task-based and durational absurdity was practice as research, a series of lateral means to a dramatic end. Consequently, I was able to lead an inter­national troupe to make visual theatre guided by narratives of three seers, Anna O., Olive Pixley, and the Oracle, Pythia. Only by concluding these processes could I finally begin to define my conceptual frame­work, ‘to find out’ doctrine.
