Thanks for the post. Despite being a thorough philistine, I vividly recall photos of her work in Performance Research, a journal based in Aberystwyth (PR is hard to pigeonhole, but approach was slightly reminiscent of a more academic, less Punk version of Re/Search). As journals marketer in my 1st 3 yrs @ Routledge, found amazing stuff in the strangest places.

Am a child of conventional theater, so PR was a shock for me--but the images in their article on her were haunting, esp considering that I last viewed em back in 1997.
