Abstract

This chapter aims to generate a conceptual discursive space to explore how the term Performance may operate as a methodological rationale in the planning, production and dissemination of a work of performance art. My intention is to inform readers of the strengths and advantages as well as the limitations and dangers that I have experienced using performance as a tool within the context of contemporary art practice as a means to prise open the mechanics of the phenomenological relationships that people have with one another.
