Welcome to Studio Swan is a speculative fictional proposition that asked what conditions would be required for us to temporarily become with a plant or animal? And why would this be something desirable or necessary to undertake?
Answering these questions initially found form as a list of characters for a play which performs as a landscape to think through the possibilities that entail living through another pair of eyes, feeling through another nervous system, an intensely sympathetic state perhaps?
Researching and writing this play involves various methodologies, such as inviting others to meet with me and co-create characters over coffee. Using one character a starting point, the conversation meanders across personal experiences, research and flights on imagination.
