Listening Across a Distance
thesisposted on 19.02.2019, 00:29 by JACQUELINE MAREE SHELTON
This research project seeks to explore the embodied intimacies and conflicts produced in performative art practices, through the reciprocity of two bodies speaking and listening to one another. Through my studio research I produced two intimate performance works, which hinge on a process of memorising a story (or stories) and coaching a participant to recite the stories verbatim. Through this I seek to develop a temporary relationship that emphasises the intricacies of intimate relations and their development through conversation.
