Indelible: A Hypermedia Remembering (2005) examines notions of memory, remembering and representation within a movement and performance research context. Its content, presented on a cross-platform DVD-ROM, is both poetic and scholarly and addresses various key issues of contemporary performance making: documentation, liveness, and practice-led methodologies. It is a reflective and painstakingly thorough response to the difficulties and possibilities of presenting and doing practice as research, and as such, is an invaluable resource for performance makers and artists working and researching within or alongside academic contexts.
