Panel 4: Differing Practices: Experimental Theatre and Performance Art

Moderator: Margo Kane
Speakers: Floyd Favel, Marie Clements, Delores Dallas

“When you’re bringing what you are and who you are to your art form, whether you do it consciously or unconsciously, it starts becoming an applied practice, that is your artistic practice. So you’re fusing that together with, you know, how you started out in the world and you fuse that together with your blood and memories and what you want to say, you’re witnessing and that becomes this fusion that gets on stage or gets in a space that other people are going to witness.”
—Marie Clements, INDIANacts conference, December 1, 2002.
