Solveig Daugaard’s paper will deal with literary collaborations across space-time. In the experimental collage essay A Prank of Georges (2011) Thalia Field and Abigail Lang reenter Gertrude Stein’s work in a collaborative spirit, cutting from the oeuvre they are exploiting the mobility of Stein’s linguistic material in creating performative machines that are setting in motion a host of social, philosophical, and scientific contexts. The movement from the medium of the book to the medium of performance will be explored. The relation between page and stage is in constant focus in A prank of Georges. Stein also had it in mind when she started writing plays – I see this move of hers as a challenge to the medium of the book – as an insisting upon corporeal aspects of textuality – new experience upon every reading.
