Sample text

I am for my work, what is called in the traditional Japanese theatre, a kuroko: a character, all dressed in black (his face is covered too), who leads the entire piece from the backstage, who prepares the stage, who gives directions to the actors and sometimes appears on the stage, but always stays unnoticed. Without his presence in the background the piece could not advance. Still he has to stay always hidden, even though he appears in the foreground. This is the best position that I could take for my work.

Relationships in which the present is not predetermined by the past, and which result from unexpected configurations and ramifications, are the domain of difference for Deleuze. As far as virtuality exists, it has a reality that, even though it is not actual, has the power to be productive. On the other hand, difference cannot exist without actuality. The idea of virtuality brings into question the potentiality of different, differentiated forms of presence that Deleuze calls essentially positive and creative (Deleuze 2007: 128).

Its effect generates difference and divergence from the lived actuality. The question that results is why differenciation does not become a system of representation and does not flow into similarity and identity. Deleuze explains that the actualization of the virtual has to be understood as a system that is exposed continuously to transformation. Differenciation is not to be understood as a version/a transposition of the virtual, which it differentiates, since it manifests through the appearance of creativity and the new.
