lower(the)depths

lower(the)depths was an interdisciplinary theatre project developed in collaboration with Barak adé Soleil and diverse Montreal artists from August 26-September 4, 2015.

I built the website and did live archiving/ documentation, interpreting the creative process with writing, video and audio.

Sample archives:

I developed a practice of live archiving – which is a combination of witnessing, documentation via video, writing, interviews, audio, and blogging in real-time (or close to it!)

Thanks in large part to Barak adé Soleil and the theatre project, lower(the)depths, I developed my practice of this technique in an intensive summer residency in the summer of 2015. My participation was sponsored by the Critical Disability Studies Working Group at Concordia University.
