A Possible Heritage
Street Performances as a Participative Cultural Heritage
Street performances can be interpreted as process of participation to a form of CH. We would like to interpret the provisions of the Faro Convention from the perspective of street performances as a form of participatory cultural experience, as along with considering the street performers as an actual heritage community. Given that the Convention confers a remarkable importance to individuals – as they are part of the communities – we will focus on the passage from the cultural object itself – the street performance – to the actors and beneficiaries of the heritage which this object constitutes: the street performers and the audience at the moment of the show.
