Having sat here for a few weeks staring at a blank page, not knowing what to write a dissertation about, daunted by the fact it’s a major piece of work.
After deciding to continue my performance project and develop ideas and annotate research I aim to compile a set of blog posts all contributing to a dissertation.
I really want to look into different aspects of performance, and what people actually perceive as a performance. Why do some people value theatrical performance more than maybe a street busker? Is it all about speciation or participation? I aim to annotate a variety of performance styles from different ages, I do realise that ‘performance’ as a whole is such a massive topic it would take years to analyse all the information. So I’m picking and choosing the most common, influential and recognisable types of performances and annotating these with a sort of score card, as well as the history and development of these.
