Olivia Russell

Playing and engaging with narrative space, my practice attempts to tell stories. These stories are told in different forms by extending the voice through text, sound and movement. Live performance incorporates all these elements and becomes a synthetic voice made up of these three medias.

My written text is a principle part of my work and often instructs my performance pieces. Rhythm is introduced, as embedded symbols and letters instruct movement or invite the reader to play with phonetic sound. Object, movement and sound thus perform dialogue, holding narratives as significantly as language does. My practice also provokes my audience to question live-ness through the manipulation of audio-visual performance.
