Not about my tears

On the eleventh of May 2016, Daniel died in a bed in a hospital. This episode tells of the encounter with the doctor who tells that the son is about to die, the autobiographical story is mixed with an episode from the saga about Volsung and theory of how memory is perceived in Norse myths.

Appreciate if you will do this survey: https://nettskjema.no/a/153770. The survey is anonymous.


This is a part of a project called Mimesis in crisis.

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 dramaturg and researcher Paula Crutchlow and the first audiofile is out on Monday 11th of May and is called: It is not about my tears.

The project is supported by Federation for European storytelling.
