The goal of my work in production has been to create immersive, multimedia performances. My own creative practice includes storytelling, curating, podcasting and visual art. I have worked with spoken word artists, storytellers, musicians, sound technicians, installation and digital artists.
2016 to present :: I am part of a collective called Electric Circuits, based in Kingston, Ontario. Each year we put on a multimedia festival of electronic and digital art. Artists from Montreal, Toronto, Kingston and Ottawa collaborate to create immersive, multivalent performances of sound and images. We are funded each year to varying degrees by the Ontario Arts Council, the Canada Council for the Arts, the City of Kingston Arts Fund, Tourism Kingston, and several other sponsorship organizations. Please visit electriccircuits.org for details.
2015 to 2016 :: I developed and co-created an event with Kim Renders (Chipped Off Performance Collective) called Garrula (Latin for talkative). We ran a biweekly storytelling drop-in skills development session, and chose the best storytellers to perform at the bi-monthly Garrula event. The event was recorded by Matt Rogalsky (Memory Device Recording Studio) and a well-curated event became a well-produced podcast. Please visit garrula.ca for details.
In 2017 I was contracted to write and record several short podcasts about life in Kingston, Ontario. This was part of a beautiful project designed and developed by Vincent Perez (Everlovin’ Press). The podcasts are available on the visitkingston.ca website.
