Proyecto Escritura: The Writing Project

Proyecto Escritura

Title of Performance: The Writing Project

Country: Chile

The Writing Project is about collaborative writing in public spaces. Typewriters are installed in different places so that passers-by can use them, relate to the context and place they are in. We exhibit and share the project's archive in progress creating a community performance.

The experience of writing, public reading, discussing and interacting build a liminal space where new stories and memories find a home. The community discovers an organic language in this performance art which they can use to show their own practices, topics, concerns, disappointment, fears, treasures, and hopes.

Everybody is welcome: diversity in terms of gender, age, territory, ethnicity is important for us. The idea is to put on stage the texts that result from this ongoing project without intermediation.

A variety of typewriters, a mix of people, different voices, listening to each other, this is the Writing Project; writing, reading and listening in collaboration.
