I Once Fell in Love with an Audience Member Practice, Performance, Politics

Notes

In this essay, Tania El Khoury considers performance through the lens of her own practice as a live artist and as a member of Dictaphone Group, a live events project El Khoury started with Abir Saksouk. What emerges is a perspective of a contemporary artist working within the frame of performance, and how one within this frame might define their own practice through experience. In Miscellaneous Articles Folder #4.
