The Next Next?

Phrases from my latest course readings:

Where do we go from here? What’s the next next?  When you break the fourth wall, do you move on to the fifth wall?  The sixth wall?  How many walls are there?  Now I’m trying to picture all the possible dimensions of live theatre, from splashzones to smell-o-vision, but I digress…

I used to worry that a culture defined by referencing others wasn’t much of a culture at all.  But maybe we’re just in the process of becoming a new thing that can’t be named yet.  And maybe it’s natural to hack together references in an attempt to describe something you have no words for.
