"To destroy people physically and mentally; to alter and deprive them of they imagine, their beliefs, their needs, their emotions and their sensibility; to condition them. To use them in experimental patterns in order to transpose, on a higher, spiritual and ritual, symbolic and creative level, the powerful images which might emerge from their possible reactions and behavior, and so dramatize a situation which exists in real life. We have forgotten the taste of simple, true and deep emotions. We have forgotten even the smell of a human being, as Senghor very well said in one of his poems. By means of an accepted discipline, rather than experiment for its own sake, and through human destruction, I plan to rediscover and reconquer the basic values and feelings of the human mind." - Jean Toche, estratto dal testo 'Manifesto #1 for a theater of human destruction'
