In this chapter Tracy McMullen interviews Judith Butler on the philosopher’s understanding of improvisation in her work. Butler discusses improvisation in relation to play, performance, performativity, repetition, relationship, freedom, and rules. Butler shares her opinion on the killing of Osama bin Laden and the nation’s response to the news. McMullen frames Butler’s thoughts with her own theory of the improvisative, an idea inspired by Butler’s thinking but with a focus on the potential for agency.
