March 1997. Editor: Anjum Katyal

As STQ enters its fourth year, we find ourselves searching for different ways of writing about, documenting, discussing, theatre and performance: other modes of expression and communication. What could these be? What can convey the complex of risk, exploration, uncertainty, discovery, conviction, passion, excitement, partnership, teamwork, connectedness and introspection, that makes up a life in and of theatre.

The visual, for one. Communication through the visual as a vital component, complementing words. Or even confronting them. Or refuting them. At the moment, the visual image is still a marginalized aspect of most theatre documentation or analysis: even when there is access to photography, for example, this medium is utilized in the most utilitarian of ways. We are making a conscious effort to 'think visually' when we document process or performance.
