Mise en Place

Pure Research 30 – Derek Chan and Alexis Diamond

Research focus

To investigate how the mind and body establish and adapt to a new relationship, which inevitably involves both a transfer of knowledge and the creation of a new vocabulary or means of communication. This research undertakes a meta-analysis of the process of creation by attempting to develop a common creative language by teaching the other a recipe from our culture in a language the other doesn’t know (Cantonese and French, respectively).

Collaborators and credits

Nightswimming’s Brian Quirt, Brittany Ryan and associate dramaturg Myekah Payne.

Dates: TBA, 2021.
