a type of performance art?[edit]

In what way were illustrated songs a type of performance art? Yes, there was a singer who encouraged call-and-response, singing along, etc. But what made that so different from a concert? Or, are concerts a form of performance art?Peter (talk) 05:55, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

Now that I have found several examples online of contemporary illustrated song performances, I will accept that, yes, illustrated songs are often a type of performance art. I just think that historically, illustrated songs were not really thought of as performance art any more than concerts or plays were.Peter (talk) 17:05, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
