2. PERFORMANCE SPACE
In this section firstly the term ‘performance’
will be discussed and defined for the purposes of this dissertation. Then
the structured division between performer and audience and the attendant creation
of a performance space will be established. This will be followed by a discussion
of the nature of such a space and how it provides different roles for performers
and audience. Finally, how all of this has significant consequences for the
meanings of utterances will be highlighted.
