The Audience and Dialogue Within Performance

‘Performance art consists of private rituals and public acts, catharsis and confrontation are the central strands of art as performance. The work is the beginning of a dialogue, not an end. It is something shared. We are all performers, even when we are playing at being spectators.’

Establishing a meaningful two way dialogue between the audience and the artist allows for deeper understanding and changes within the emotional state of the viewer. Therefore I will continue to use performance within my practice to allow a stronger audience connection but from my research into participation and audience within art I will leave the relationship between the artist and no artist open to allow these changers to occur.
