Performance is notoriously difficult to document. Its ephemeral, often immersive, nature can’t always be captured via conventional documentation such as photography. Therefore, at WROUGHT, we have employed the vision of a creative documenter-in-residence, Helen Iball. Throughout the festival, Helen will offer a range of media and approaches to documentation with the aim of providing an opportunity for reflection and preservation of experience. This process can then act as a springboard for conversations around performance, presence and the intangible aspect of ‘being’.
This creative documentation activity offers a place for audience-participants to reflect upon the One to One/s they attended, through 3D-doodling and modelling with the items provided on the table. Primarily, this is a personal and individual activity, and it is deliberately visual rather than verbal, as a means to explore experiential and affective responses.
