This essay examines the work of Forced Entertainment, in pticul Mina & Lee and Emanuelle Enchanted, and their relationship to Romanticism and Lyotd's re-workings of Kant's Sublime. The specul relationship between performer and audienceis positioned as the deconcatenated moment(s) of the inexpressible/unpresentable (the sublime) thatdisrupts the operations and opens out the limits of representation.
