Dolphin Days 

‘Dolphin Days’ is an immersive hybrid installation/theatre production, which reconstructs the moments leading up to a note being written in November 1972. It is a constructed dualistic atmosphere encompassing anticipation for departure and arrival, and an axis for dialogue surrounding travel, migration and globality. This work has its origin in a note, found in a copy of a book by author Patrick Anderson called ‘Dolphin Days: A Literary Companion to Mediterranean Pleasures’ (1965) and reconstructs/imagines the moments between a young couple (the authors of the note) leading up the the moment in which the note was written.

This work is currently in development, and was devised with the assistance of Amelia Tuttleby and Monty Sallur, and supported by a studio residency at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts in Perth, Australia, in 2017.
