Site-specific performance

Site-specific performance is performance created in relation to a physical site and staged at the site itself (as opposed to a theatre space). It often involves research of the site prior to the performance.[1] It is often discussed in relation to both theatre and visual art traditions.[2] Nick Kaye was one of the first scholars to consider site-specific performance from both theatrical and visual art perspectives in his book, Site-Specific Art: Performance, Place and Documentation.[3]
