Project Development Studio || N2S Map Transcription


What my project is:

Immigrants Don’t go to Therapy is a live Music Talk Radio show. Akin to existing radio variety shows, it will feature performers, live instrumentation, and a level of interactivity from the audience. Through the exploration of the impact of sensorial elements, the aim is to utilize music and “less words/ feelings to illicit a cathartic response from subjects and participants in the show.


What are two projects that serve as inspiration:

A Prairie Home Companion

Sarah Jones’ Performance Pieces


What are the first steps?

A mapping/game plan of what needs to be done. I believe I need to write sample scripts and then build the rest of the show around it (music, interaction, etc) as well as research on my “goal” audience

Is it big enough to interest you for a whole semester?

Yes it is.

 If it is enormous, what aspect of this core idea can you tackle? Is that a project in itself?

I think at least one performance, in the vein of a one woman-show is feasible. It is a project, that needs to be completed for my progress as a creator, performer, writer, person.
