Walking around Queen West I came across a quaint building side with four balconies stacked on top of one another all connected by a fire escape. Immediately the idea of having three vignettes; one happening on each level, flashed across my mind and stuck. Using the imagery of stacking to connect to age I want to interview a group of children, 20-somethings and 60+ persons asking them to share a memory that has a specific sound connected to it. I will create three dances, using three dancers, one on each level, that embody the memories while also playing a composed piece of music that incorporates the specific sound they talked about as well as spoken word from their interviews.
This is an example of an interview and the picture of the potential location.
