Travel and writing

9 Jan

This is an adventure in writing about performance. I’m off to Vancouver tomorrow to watch Forced Entertainment’s two shows at the Push Festival, and want to write daily about it. Trying to match the immediacy of live performance with fast, scratchy, note-pad type writing. To write it down before it works into the smoothness of archived memory, with its rewriting/ replaying function almost hidden.

Later, I’ll work these writings into something— a chapter, I hope— but let them be raw first.
I hope to keep some of the weave and rough edges of different times and modes of writing in the finished product.
