In an interview in 2005, Penny Arcade explained how performance-oriented play arose from the collaborations of marginalised individuals in New York in the 1960s:
'' Everybody performed all the time. It was a way of entertaining yourself and your friends. But it wasn't self-conscious, it wasn't like somebody was on all the time, it was a way of mediating your own personality. We didn't have any model for the kinds of people we were. We were freaks in the real sense that we were not normal, in school and by our families, and we were in New York being not normal together...The other side of feeling different and weird and awful and alienated is feeling special, right? So you..make yourself feel better by making yourself special.''
