The art of performing seemingly non-sensical
actions, in order to appear avant-garde
These actions should make the least amount of sense
possible, and ideally, should contain an element of whimsy.
Objects are an important part of Performance Art. They should preferably be unrelated to the action you are performing at the time, or, alternatively, you can make a statement by having none at all. Objects
can be thrown, eaten or caressed as part of effective Performance Art.
Costume is crucial. While it is true that three international treaties have banned lycra leotards, they are the ideal outfit for the Performance Artist.
You are guaranteed to look terrible, and this will add to your mystique.
Finally, the voice is the Performance Artist's best friend. Random noises are best, but spoken word will do in a pinch. If you can sing - don't. You will look like a busker, and this is not arty at all.
