Auntie Cwl

A performance artist's show which saw her spend three hours balancing on a beam while becoming drunk on lager has been defended by theatre officials.
The Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff staged the work in its public bar by Tokyo-based Tomoko Takahashi, who is also known as Anti-Cool.

I was vaguely aware of this stunt, but I only realised when my brother told me yesterday that it took place in Cardiff. None of the acres of coverage around the world, seems to say if she fell off the beam or not. I would be interested to know if it is indeed easier than falling off a log.

I spent many a happy and intense Brains lubricated evening in the Chapter in my youth. It is fun to see it in the public eye like this.
