De la performance theory aux performance studies

From Performance Theory to Performance Studies
Jean-Marie Pradier
p. 287-300

Abstracts

Performance theory is the name given in the United States in the 1960s to an interdisciplinary research perspective in progress born from the confluence of currents of thought and practice based on the concept of action/interaction. Specialized fields of research and practice have emerged according to the specificity of the objects of study (sport, engineering, art, linguistics, anthropology, psychology of management). Institutionalized interaction of the living arts and the humanities − philosophy, linguistics, anthropology − has resulted in the foundation of performance studies, whose two major academic centers − New York University NYU and Northwestern University − present strong identities. The article briefly describes the state of affairs, particularly in the arts, aesthetics, anthropology and life sciences.
