What is it we do in Performance Analysis?

One of Jacquie Tran's delightful sketchnotes appeared in my Twitter feed a couple of days ago ... https://twitter.com/jacquietran/status/893271086896357376 It coincided with a message I received from Jamie Coles and the subsequent guest posts that appeared on Clyde Street today.

The title of the paper was Working with Coaches and Performers: Notational Analysis as Liberational Praxis? My background in social sciences had encouraged me to think about the links...
