Under the term ‘performance practices’, all methods, acts, and techniques can be subsumed that are used in the performing arts and in live art. Performance practices are characterised by their representational, semantic, as well as constitutional power that influences their aesthetics in different degrees (Fischer-Lichte 2004: 31-57). Performance practices and strategies have also been converted into tools whose uses are no longer confined to the realms of stage and audience, but which can be used to create various forms of participation. In PABR, we have transformed many formats and techniques that were previously used exclusively for artistic production into formats of exploration and public participation.
