Perform as something other than yourself: to act in Theater, to lie 4. To perform your identity: femminity, your culture, your identities Performance explains human action; to entertain, to march, change human identity; to heal; to teach or persuaded; to deal with the secret 3 Key elements with performance: to make it unique / 3 ways performance and communication theory intersect 1. Context: all performances in some way, we speak in a particular context, just scene on stage is set, but that is pre-written on stage. All communication motivated by desire, conscious, unconscious, feelings, thoughts 2. Text: 1. cultural, linguistics expectations 2.The unique characteristics of the speaker Communication is a process; we try to communicate in an effective way All communication is open to interpretation.
