May I Take Your Arm? by Red Dress Productions
Hosted by FOLDA - Festival of Live Digital Art
June 12, 2020 – 7:30 pm EST
May I Take Your Arm? (MITYA) – created by Alex Bulmer, Anna Camilleri, Tristan Whiston, and Katie Yealland, with creative access support from Becky Gold – emerged from audio-recorded walks between blind performer Bulmer and strangers who provided sighted guide in a downtown neighbourhood in Toronto. It evolved into a theatre piece that integrates live performance, immersive audio, live video animation, tactile installation, and interaction. Reimagined as a livestream performance, May I Take Your Arm’s exploration of interdependence and how we turn space into place into home is more poignant than ever.
