| Ms. Vaucher (M.F.A. in Dance: UW-Madison) leads a modern dance ensemble,
Animage, which presented its debut performance at the Princeton's Loft Theater
in June 12 1998.
Ms. Vaucher studied dance theory at the University of California and has taught
dance, dance theory and therapy at NYU and the
Universities of California, Wisconsin, Southern Illinois, and Georgia.
Borrowing from modern and classical dance styles, Ms. Vaucher says her troupe of six dancers creates new forms of movement, which are physical and improvisational, much like kittens rolling around on top of each other while playing. The dancers are accompanied by musicians improvising on tabla, kaleidoscope, percussion, didgeridoo and voice.
| Vaucher's work with the anarchist band
from the innovative wraparound record sleeves to the posters - is seminal to
the 'protest art' of the '80s; imitated by the 'underground' and ripped-off by
the 'mainstream', hers is the work that most people would recognize, but whose
name few would know. She saw her art as a tool for social change and her work
with Crass is a good example of her agit-prop approach. Examples of her work
can be found in
CRASS Art and Other Pre Post-Modernist Monsters, "a stunning collection
of painting and collage work from the punk movement's seminal protest artist"

For some local educators, this is a disturbing statement about the attitude and aims of some young women. "Did she think this was the only avenue open to her? It's so distorted," says Andrea Vaucher, the head of a mentoring program at the Archer School for Girls, a school on the West Side founded four years ago by concerned parents. "This is a person who thinks nothing of herself. She is grandiose and at the same time insecure. What a strange place to be."
