LIVE ARTS FOR THE EVERYDAY – APPLICABLE THOUGHT #57 – Site-specific Perfomance

A site-specific performance is conceived with the peculiarities of a particular space in mind, so much so that the show would be completely different or even impossible somewhere else. What might be seen as difficulties are seen as opportunities offered by the landscape. Sometimes we apply the same pattern to different situations. This can save us time and energy, but standardization cannot fully address particularities. If we take the conditions as they are, what would be a situation-specific action?
