The purpose of this article is to explicate the nature of micro-performance dramaturgies and the ontology of the agency that this generates for the participants, through a consideration of KeepHouse Performance’s You, Hope, Her & Me. This article presents a localized understanding of the one-to-one style micro-performance strategies through an empirically responsible cognitive materialism lens, employing notions of the liminal and liminoid to conceptualize the nature of the performance space and participative dramaturgy. This article also considers the nature of the documentation practices embedded within those liminoid acts.
