So #metoo happened. What now?
After collecting hours of audio interviews from people of different genders, sexual orientations, cultures, ages and abilities -- real life stories and reflections around the #metoo movement come to life through the mediums of headphone verbatim and dance.
#whatnow includes testimonials from survivors of harassment, misconduct and assault as well as stories from those who took accountability for their harms. And throughout the piece is crafted subtle ensemble movement that articulates tone, environment and viewpoints.
It also utilizes an innovative format called “headphone verbatim” where edited audio interviews are played through headphones to actors on stage, and the actors mimic and repeat what they hear, in real time. Every cough, stutter and hesitation is reproduced, and the actors never “memorize the lines”.
ASL performance on November 7th. Emotional support worker present at each performance.
