I am currently working on a project looking at the movement of people. I am asking about the times in our lives we have moved home, when, where and why.
From this I hope to create an exhibition and a theatre piece to accompany it.
If you would like to be a part of this project I would be very happy to hear about your experiences of moving.
I am collecting from 1 to 5 minutes of audio recording or up to around 400 words and a photo of each person's whole head, similar to the background one here. I suggest you start with your first name, where you were born and then where you have moved and why including any significant reasons but feel free to interpret the subject however you wish. I am interested in everyone's stories, whether you have lived all your life in one place or moved all over the world, for whatever reason. An audio file (mp3 or similar) would be ideal but alternatively a written document would be great too, I will be transcribing these. The photo would preferably be front facing, full head against a light background to be printable at A4 size (5MB or above). Please refer to these examples for a clearer idea of what I am looking for.
If you take part I will
be happy to send you a copy of your story as I intend to use it and inform you of when the work is being exhibited. Thank you in advance for your story.
Please get in touch for more information.
