The theatrical experience can no longer be limited by the confines of a conventional performance space if it is to continue being fresh, lively and spontaneous. Today the developments in electronic imagery systems have broadened the language in the theatrical arena. As a result, performance can even reach beyond earthly communication. In order to understand the role of performance outside preconceived notions of theater, it is important to see it in a larger framework. My proposal attempts a step toward the fusion of performance and environment. I hope to state the potential for "gestural statement" (within a performance framework) on a large scale. One part of the thesis will be a written historical account of large-scale performance which has been integrated in the environment. The second part will be a performance of my own design-- the Woods Hole Inflatable Performance Sculpture (WHIPS).
