Performance Crisis: An anti-performance manifesto by Stefania Mylona

Why perform?

Can we not not perform?

Against performance for performance’s sake.

Performaniacs, chill. (Writing to myself)

Never perform when you do not feel like it.

Never perform for others. Perform for yourself. Yes, the audience is not a prerequisite yet it will always be there.

Perform when you need to do so. Necessity is vital.

Never perform what others want you to perform unless you like it.

You are your performance.

Perform whatever you want.

Perform wherever you want.

Perform however you want. Do not allow contextual barriers, site-specificity and others confine you in any way.

Perform your own restraints.

Never misperform. Even when you do.

Never perform for free. Always gain at least something.

Don’t care what happens to your performance, especially afterwards.

Your performance constantly leaves you.  

Hear what others have to say but never listen to them. Not even me.

Reflect reflection.

Performance as Response

Posted on April 17, 2013 at 17:29 0 Comments

I was so happy to get Laura’s email asking for the participants’ feedback mostly because the truth is that I wanted to share my thoughts on others’ thoughts. But why? What is it that makes us wanting, perhaps needing or even feeling obliged to response? Otherness. In a sense, all performance can perhaps be perceived as a response.

What’s love got to do with it? Perhaps that all life performance is generated through acts of love. In practice and literally through making love (much much…
