One who "does." A term that has become popular with arts academics to justify a rather tenuous relationship to professional realities. But in our context, what is a practice? Is it a job? Is it an art? Not really either, but something vaguely in between with an implied status equivalent to the medical professions.

No serious actors would ever refer to themselves as "practitioners." For what else would they be?
