表演艺术家，应该比actor, actress 水平更高，英语有这个说法吗？
I think they are like apples are to oranges. A performance artist's work is his/her action/antics. According to wikipedia, "Performance art is art in which the actions of an individual or a group at a particular place and in a particular time constitute the work." I.e. the work is the action and not some static drawing/painting.
