“I am most concerned at present with performance having a meaningful relation to its location and audience, acknowledgement of the live nature of performance, and being open to change occurring within performance, despite structures set in the creation of work. The presence of the statue of Galileo in the hall of the Lanyon building has had a significant impact on the performance I will do.”
