Stories of Regina

Mapping and Mining Narratives of Place Through Interdisciplinary Performance

 

Dancer……Kathryn Ricketts | Cellist……Terry Sefton

Sustainable Stage Provided by the Faculty of MAP

 

This project investigates the primacy of place in memory, and how the stories we tell are rooted in those places of fascination. Terry Sefton (cellist) and Kathryn Ricketts (dancer) translate and re-create stories, using improvised music and dance. They collect stories from volunteers, using carto-elicitation; the act of locating a spot on a map that triggers a personal narrative. These stories may be tales of personal experience, identity, or family history, that are connected to a specific location, either a ‘real’ place of daily life, or the ‘imaginary’ terrain of memory – streets or houses or fields that may no longer exist.

This performance explores the potency of shared stories provoked by specificity of place, in this case Windsor, and how these stories can be mined for new meanings through re-creative performance. 

This 15 minute performance is followed by a 15 minute talk back with audience facilitated by Kenneth Wilson.
