I place “the other” in quotations to flag the troubles with its invocation, which tacitly assumes and reasserts the position of the white, Western subject to which all else is “other.” These troubles are of key interest to this study since many of the immersions examined in these pages configure cultural difference through a white, Western paradigm even as they try to bridge understanding across difference. 2.

For a recent reexamination of the theoretical debates concerning the notions of “live” and “real time” in performance, see Rebecca Schneider, Performing Remains:Art and War in Times of Theatrical Reenactment (New York: Routledge, 2011), in particular chapter 3. 6.

I elaborate on Sara Ahmed’s notion of “epistemic authority” and the notion of “presumptive intimacies” in chapters 2 and 3. 9. I borrow the phrase rights emergency from Daniel Fischlin, Ajay Heble, and George Lipsitz’s collection The Fierce Urgency of Now: Improvisation, Rights, and the Ethics of Cocreation (Durham, NC: Duke University Press, 2013), xiii. 10.
