  6. 6. Rationale • Over-generalise application of tourism theories. • Studies under a „managerism“ approach. “There was an obvious skew towards analysing either the visitor or consumer profiles and the image of destinations” (Tse, 2009, p.23) • Studies based on “Western” concepts, not critically adapted to China´s reality. 6
  7. 7. Aim • To explore and provide further understandings on the tourist performances of Chinese outbound organized mass tourists on German tourism stages. • How? Dramaturgical metaphor of Erving Goffman (1959) and “Performance Studies” from Richard Schechner (2002, 2006) 7
  8. 8. Objectives • To analyse the development of the Chinese outbound tourism in general and especially mass organized tourists, in order to explore how Chinese tourists learn to be a tourist • To conduct an ethnographic study, as to identify how Chinese tourists perform on German tourism stages • To describe the construction of tourism stages in Germany, in order to contextualize the performances allow for the Chinese outbound tourists to happen 8
