The Corporate Warrior

Corporate Warriors are strong: They are beacons of confidence and objective truths, full of productive visions of the future and, most importantly, know exactly how the world works. Through a practice of improvisational presentation and conversation, Michael Burditt Norton channels his own inner-warrior using both memory and productive language found in motivational talks, politics and business: how to optimize, streamline, believe, and succeed. This satirical and auto-biographical work uses personal, learned behavior to probe the limits of assumed power and perceived self-determination. It looks for the cracks and brittle-ness of the ‘self-made’ warrior, finds moments to disestablish its power, and reveals what (if anything) lies behind it.
