The Ways of Performance Art

The Ways of Performance Art

The Ways of Performance Art
By Michael Barrett, Ph.D. (ABD)

An annual lecture performance consisting of eighteen volumes. (2020-2038)

Independently published paperback and digital books.

Copies of the first volume "Humans and Nature" are available internationally on Amazon and other online bookstores. See below for links.

I suppose most of you have heard of performance art. However, before going on to describe any details about it, I want to make one thing completely clear. I do not identify as a performance artist. I am not advocating performance art. I am not attempting to persuade anyone to it. I have nothing to sell. I am simply a human being.

That is to say, in the same sense that when you go to the market, and you hear someone playing Bob Marley on a Bluetooth speaker.

That person has nothing to sell other than the character of the lyrics or melody. They are not attempting to convert you to anything, nor do they want you to join an association in support of reggae over pop music.

I approach this lecture performance in the same spirit as a person listening to their radio. I just want you to enjoy a point of view, which I enjoy.

Lastly, the first volume "Humans and Nature" does not concern itself with academic formating. It is simply a humble guide for navigating this thing we call performance art.
