Moments, the performance

Moments is a series of participatory storytelling projects. Five silver wires stretch across a room, representing a timeline that is segmented into four seasons across multiple years. Participants pick hand-made beads and write the date and story of a meaningful moment of their life in my journal. The beads are placed on the wires, which are then treated as a musical staff, each bead being a note. In preparing the performance, I create a monologue and song-inspired stories behind each bead, and this is performed by myself and an accompanying violinist. As we perform, assisted by a third performer, The Assistant, I disassemble and reshape the wires and beads, creating a sculpture representing the moments and stories shared. 

Moments, the installations, can be commissioned to be personalized and tailored to a specific event, location, object, or individual.
