This is a research project and your answers will help us better understand the transition from here and now experience of oral storytelling to a digital medium.

 

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 performances 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 performances 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. 

Each narrative consists of a mixture of autobiographical material, Norse material, theory and sounds recorded in the immediate area of where Dahlsveen lives.

In the project, the storyteller Mimesis Heidi Dahlsveen collaborates with British dramaturg and researcher Paula Crutchlow.

The project is supported by the Federation for European storytelling.
