Rituals for overcoming panic; rituals for controlling one’s heart beats; rituals for boosting group cohesion; rituals for producing unprecedented mental states; survival rituals; rituals for the enhancing of resilience; rituals of acceptance. Today, millions of people share their way of singing, dancing, building, healing, playing sports, defending themselves or playing an instrument, all through the videos posted on Youtube. With OUR DAILY PERFORMANCE we approach the tutorial as a new type of ritual. It is through this ritualisation of the ordinary that YouTube enables the emergence of new types of communities, challenging our notions of identity, ethics, aesthetics, governance, privacy, economy, love, family .. Performing tutorials, not as re-enactments but as poetic explorations of the interface between ritual and theater, between social drama and aesthetics.
