Mimesis in crisis - oral storytelling in time of isolation

Under the research question What challenges, concerns, and tools require the presence of mimesis when transporting oral storytelling to digital platforms?, the project aims to create storytelling audiofiles for the medium Podcast, where the objectives is to look at what aesthetic tools are needed to create a holistic artistic oral storytelling experience when the listener is not present in time and space. This is an artistic research project in which the process from planning to implementation is developed and explored through a method-developing practice aimed at a digital medium. The audiofiles will be planned and implemented, organized and disseminated through Podcast where the storyteller's aesthetic tools are re-articulated and tested through a medium that is not the oral storyteller’s daily working platform. 

In the project I am collaborating with British Paula Crutchlow and the first audiofile is out on Monday 11th of May and is called: It is not about my tears. Each episode comes in Norwegian and English.

The project is supported by Federation for European storytelling.
