To the contrary, I view performance with a very wide lens. But at least
I acknowledge it- you seem to think it somehow is not necessary.
That newspaper article you mention- is that not a performance? Of

This statement is ludicrously meaningless to the performance model.
Herein somewhat modified to make some sense to the performance model-
"A performance might alter the gestalt in which it occurs, and other
performances following it might alter the gestalt even more, or
reinforce the ability to continue similar performances."
