This is the answer that I sent:<P>I saw your question posted at criticaldance.com - and I will attempt an answer. I use the word attempt because I think that each of us may have a different view - just as we view performances differently.<P>A performance is something that is staged, usually involving movement of some kind (dance, playing an instrument, singing, drama) that tries to make a connection through the senses betwist performer and audience. The audience can consist of any number of people from one to infinity. I did not include any of the graphic arts such as painting, because that is a gallery showing, an exhibit, which is not a performance. To my mind performance means some kind of movement, the performer being a live being - even though it may be on tape - in the original sense the performer is alive.<P>Basheva<P>
