Charting alternative performance and evaluative practices
This essay specifies some recent performance work, occurring with increasing frequency, in many performance studies classrooms. This work is discussed under four headings: storymaking, replication of life performance, performance art, and improvisations. The essay also identifies some issues that students and teachers might wish to take into account when encountering the presentation of such texts. The purpose of the essay is to provide performance studies practitioners (a) a list and some defining characteristics of some current performance events to guide classroom assignments and practices, (b) a brief description of some key critical concerns associated with these performance events, and (c) a consideration of some of the implications of doing such performances in the classroom.
