An essay is presented on the analogy as a heuristic medium to attain a better understanding of hybridization-processes and cultural implications. It suggests that considering the analogy as a heuristic medium from the perspective of the performing arts provides a referential framework uniquely suited to integrate cultural hybridization, personal interpretations, and analytical objectives. It also informs that hybridizing interplay between convention and invention of analogical thinking.
