The Juniper Tree in Three Voices

This shows some pieces, still unfinished, but in one possible installation, under theatre lighting.

The idea of this installation is that you enter the book, so the text is like wallpaper in a hallway that directs where you go and what you explore. We want participants to explore the story before sitting down and listening to three actors deliver monologues. After the performance, we hope our audience can tell us how the story ends.

We have incorporated dressmaking patterns into our storytelling. The whole piece has a subtext that celebrates women’s work.

Some of my images are after photographs taken by Edith Watson of Newfoundland and Canadian workers in the beginning of the twentieth century.
