Story Map Stockton (34 of 43)
A 12 hour durational performance.
"An attempt to map the entire world, alphabetically, in a day. To name every country in its own language, and to collect a story for every country, and to place it, correctly, on the map, from memory. Using cardboard, paper, pens and post-it notes, and with the help of the audience, Third Angel and mala voadora build a portrait of the world, as it was, as it is now, and as it might be in the future.
Story Map is a durational research performance that gathers and exchanges stories. Originally conceived as a research-engine for the theatre piece, What I Heard About The World, Story Map grew to become a 12 hour durational performance in its own right. Both pieces are part of a collaboration between Third Angel (Sheffield) and mala voadora (Lisbon), and produced in association with Worldmapper.org.
The stories gathered are of fakes and replicas, facsimiles and substitutes; not deceptions - the inauthentic used knowingly in the everyday."
