Together We Share

“Together We Share” is a performance for a crowd; featuring chance, vulnerability, and a chorus of voices. Various cards with differing scripts and instructions, some inquiring into the reader’s relationship to food or machines; others inviting them to speak aloud their secrets, make noise, or gossip.

First performed April 14, 2024 at AIRMW, Chicago; for Waveforms S24; with 16 card variations, and ~fifty participants.
