Silvy Panet-Raymond replied 28th Apr '17:
Different skill sets, different types of preparation. Theatre seeks conforming even when deforming, i.e. recognizing references
Performance challenges instructions, agency,bearer.
Differentiating being in the here and now. Who is here. What is now
Performance - de-forming to per-forming.
