We are currently inviting proposals to be considered for our forthcoming
'On Line' issue, co-edited by Ric Allsopp and Scott deLahunta, which will
be published September 1999. The theme for 'On Line' will be as follows:

Emerging digital media, information and communications technologies are
changing the ways in which we understand and experience time and space,
place and body. These developments challenge us to redefine existing
strategies and forms of performance, and create fresh approaches, and
alternative environments for performance making and composition. 'On Line'
wishes to explore these changing conditions as they relate to performance
practice and discourse. The co-editors invite materials from individuals
and groups involved in exploring territories where emerging technologies
and performance overlap and intersect as well as excavations of the
histories of performance and technology.

In addition to proposals for the hard copy issue we would like to encourage
the submission of digital multimedia material for possible inclusion in a
CD-Rom to accompany the issue.

*Proposals for any new or unpublished material for consideration for
inclusion in the issue should be sent to*:

Clancy Pegg (Administrator) at by the deadline
date of 1ST OCTOBER 1998.


'Performance Research' is a peer reviewed performing arts journal published
three times a year. It is international in scope with an emphasis on
contemporary European performance. The journal aims to promote a
cross-disciplinary exchange of ideas and stimulate discourses surrounding
established, experimental, speculative and prospective performance work.
Each issue combines thematic and general content from the current field of
performance research and practice.

Format (flexible): 128pp; illustrated; typically 3 - 4 articles (c6000
words) and several shorter articles (c2000) words; interviews and profiles
of contemporary artists plus photographic/graphic material, artists'
documentation and 'prepared' artists pages; performance, book and archive
reviews. The emphasis of the journal is on reflective in-depth articles
and reviews; and on original work for the page. We very rarely publish
essays of over 6000 words; the usual length is between 2000 - 4000.

Please note that proposed submissions do not necessarily have to relate to
issue themes. We actively welcome submission on any area of performance
research, practice and scholarship.

Proposals and files will be accepted on hard copy, disk or by e-mail file
attachment. 'Performance Research' uses MAC hardware with Word v5.1 and
Claris Works v4.0 software. Please save and send files (disk or
attachment) in compatible formats. If in doubt please contact us. Please
ask for further guidelines on graphic/illustration formats. All materials
should be sent directly to our Administrator Clancy Pegg at the following

Submission of an article to the journal will be taken to imply that it
presents original, unpublished work not under consideration for publication
elsewhere. By submitting a manuscript, the authors agree that the
exclusive rights to reproduce and distribute the article have been given to
