Elimination Dance

How far would you last before being eliminated, in Michael Ondaatje’s Elimination Dance (link to text)?

Me?  I’d have to get a judge’s ruling on the second item: "Those who have resisted depravity."  If I got past that, I’d definitely be gone by the 7th item down:  "All actors and poets who spit into the first row when they perform."

Here’s a Zed link to Bruce MacDonald’s short film based on the poem.
