Sea Wolf Island

I posted this prophetic post Feb.11 before we knew the coronavirus walked amongst us. The Don has opened Suicide Resorts that should be contained to protect the innocent.

I might rename this island ‘Plague Island’ where victims can get in touch with their fear of the coronavirus. There will be acupuncture.

‘Theatre and the Plague’ (1933)[edit]

Originally presented as a lecture at the Sorbonne (6 April 1933), it was revised and published in NRF (no. 253, 1st Oct. 1934).[2]: 105

Artaud developed the essay while undergoing acupuncture therapy. He was ‘suprised and amazed’ at how the treatment pinpointed ‘with precision and remarkable accuracy the deep, debilitating and demoralizing troubles that have afflicted [him] for so long’, something he related to ‘the “exteriorization” of “latent cruelty” causing the “organic disorder” (OC 4: 33) in plague-victims’.[3]
