This chapter deliberately ranges across disciplines because we wish to move
towards a better understanding of the notion of performance in relation to
ICH, where both terms are inherently transdisciplinary. We fi rst examine the
concept of performance as it is understood in Theatre and Performance Studies,
focussing on those aspects which are pertinent to ICH – embodiment, liminality
and effi cacy. Second, we turn to Heritage Studies and outline how ideas
of and about performance shape our understanding of heritage and its sociocultural
dimensions. Thirdly, and fi nally, we investigate aspects of the tension
between the performance of and the research on ICH through the lens of
ethnomusicology, a discipline that is shaped by the tensions between the wealth
of tacit cultural knowledge acquired by learning to perform works of ICH and
the need to communicate such knowledge in research outputs.
