Performance is not so much about loud prophetic answers, but about asking important questions. Yet, asking the right questions is an incredibly complex and complicated process.

How to make it possible for the monetarily resourceless, the margins to participate in this art-making process of question-making? 

How to use performance and performance-making as a tool for achieving this purpose?

How do we ask these crucial questions in an accessible, decolonial and ethical manner?


In order to find the answers to the above questions my research takes two forms. One of doing (Auto-ethnographic Performance Creation) and another of recording, observing and analysing (methodology/process building).
