Well, one was told by his job coach at the JobCentrePlus, that being in a company and a company director was not for him, so then there were four. The great changes of our time are imperilling the unity and the future of the species, and man’s own identity as well. What is to be feared is not only the painful prospect of grievous inequalities, privations and suffering, but also that we may be heading for a veritable dichotomy within the human race, which risks being split into superior and inferior groups, into masters and slaves, supermen and submen. Among the risks resulting from this situation would be not only those of conflict and other disasters (for present-day means of mass destruction might well fall into the hands of destitute and rebellious groups) but the fundamental risk of de-humanisation, affecting privileged and oppressed alike.

Reading Wynter reminds us of the magic of being human: our ability to dream up worlds, and the very concrete, and even ghastly, implications of these imaginative capacities. She approaches race as a dream produced in Western Europe and concretized through colonial extraction and the development of the modern state. In a world of many cosmogonies, Western Europe’s cosmogony became over-represented and singularized. This was the worldview that produced the novel idea of a universal Man, concentrated in the figure of the cishet male of European descent. His identity and being first followed the logic of the Church, and later, secularized science. Race was manufactured in Europe as an othering tool, artificially dividing humanity into species to buoy up the interests of the ruling class. A specific kind of human—the western Man—became the basis for what Wynter calls the western world’s “referent-we,” or whom we mean when we say “human.” Derrida, J. (1969). The ends of man. Transl. E.

"Lives Worth Living:" Theorizing Moral Status and Expressions of Human Life. Disability Studies Quarterly, 33 (4), With the added challenge of social distancing rules for performers within the performance area, there was no longer the possibility of realising the original idea of melding vocal artist, musicians and dancers through the space. However, resulting from the creative process, I felt the restrictions on space and distance imposed between each artist became a further comment on our continual attempt at getting closer and an ever shifting balance in our relationship with others.
