Dear Clare

For me, each project is different. As a result, answering your questions
with generalities is not easy, or perhaps not possible. But, in brief,
here goes. If you want a more in-depth discussion, contact me.

>My key research questions are:
>1) How do you define the performance space?
It's different every time. Sometimes circumstances define it for me. I
can discuss with respect to a particular project but in general is too

>2) Does 'technology' extend and enhance the performance space?
Sometimes. It opens up new possibilities. Used well, it usually does.

>3) To what extent does it limit the imaginative scope?
Not at all. I've only ever used technology because my imagination has led
me to it - as such it enhances the imaginative scope. I expect that
starting with the technology and then trying to decide what to do with it
would limit the imaginative scope.

>4) To what extent does it disrupt the performance space?
Not at all. If it's a disruption then why would I use it?

>5) What are the future avenues?
Anything that we can imagine.
