A short performance work that sees three nostalgic war-time women being devoured by an inflatable female behemoth puppet, Dear Pat was commissioned by the Performance Space for Live Bait Festival as part of The Box Set and performed again at Sydney Olympic Park, September 2004.

“As we witness these wartime women being slowly swallowed…it rather seems as is they are confronting and submitting to, the monstrosity of imagination itself.” – Bryoni Trezise, Real Time
