Trap Door : Vitality Breaks in the Now Times

Carberry, Elaine M.

Trinh T. Minh-ha reminds us: “Between the twin chasms of navel-gazing and navel-erasing, the ground is narrow and slippery.” Comedy, lithe and sure-footed, is clever enough to traverse that ground. Not to move from A to B, but simply to move: to move on, to move out, to move from, to move in – to breathe movement where standing water threatens death. Comedy is life.
