Description

Project Sam

Lucky’s Performative Bricolage

 

Dancer……Kathryn Ricketts | Performer & Media Artist……Ian Campbell | Bagpiper……Gale Russell | Actor……Ken Wilson

 

We will perform a particular rendering of Lucky’s monologue from Waiting for Godot which will exemplify the poetic narrative framework. This structured improvisation will hinge on fractured text from the play but through our unique performative style, folding dance, theatre, voice and visuals into a poetic collage of moving images supported by a media artist, actor and bag piper. The performance will not be considered complete until the interpretations and stories from the audience are shared.

This performative event will serve as an exemplar to poetic narratives as a potent provocation to dialogue and shared storytelling. It also outlines the catalytic nature of this method as it moves from the specificity of source material (Waiting for Godot) to broader thematics with profound shared value within a diverse group. Gale Russell will be playing treated bag pipes, Ken Wilson will be reading parts of Waiting for Godot over a megaphone and Ian Campbell, long time collaborator, will be contributing both sound and sampled imagery. 

This 15 minute performance is followed by a 15 minute talk back with audience facilitated by Kathleen Irwin.

This production was made possible by On Cue Production Hub.

COVID-19 Precautions:

  • Masks are encouraged, per University policy.
  • Social distancing will be observed as much as possible.
