Being a performer: who owns your ideas?

Laura Stacey, 13 July 2012

To speak, to move, to do, to be silent.

The interpreter of someone's ideas, the outcome, your body, the product.

Quickly taken away. Someone else standing in the collection of ideas.

Part of the fabric: formation of your interpretation, articulation and execution.

To collaborate: the rule, the principles, the behaviours, hierarchy.

Conflict, debate.

The ‘something’ created, labelled by one name.

The roles and positions that place an assumption. The freedom and the restrictions.

The frustrations and pleasure.

Tightened by the neo-liberalist language: to participate, to collaborate, to deliberate to be free.
