[Xmca-l] A bit more on performance activism

Here is a summarizing quote from Schechner's talk at the 2012 Performing the World conference. It also appears in a published chapter in the book, Performance Studies in Motion, edited by Citron, Aronson-Lehavi and Zerbib. (I have a co-authored chapter on performance activism in the same book.) 

To perform is to explore, to play, to experiment with new relations
To perform is to cross borders, not only geographic but emotional, ideological, political and personal
To perform is to engage in life-long activity study, to grasp every book as a script, as something to be played with, interpreted, reformed and remade
To perform is to become someone else and yourself at the same time, to empathize, react grow and change.
