Performance Kit is
-an open-source research
-a kit ready-to-use
-a tool for analysis
-an instant show
-a survival operation in the scenic environment
-a score waiting to be actualized
-a performance half-virtual, half-real, that no one will ever be able to get totally
-a study on the know-how of a performer
-a treasure hunt
-an audio-guide for the stage
-a study on the triangular relation spectator-performer-author
-a way of working
Performance Kit is a study on the act of performing and on its sociological, philosophical and political implications.
It manifests itself in various formats: a workshop, a performance, a list of questions, an audio-score.
