Finding the Hidden Story: An Audio Evening with Big Shed
UnionDocs (322 Union Ave., Brooklyn)
$9 suggested donation
It’s a noisy, noisy world out there. Big Shed wants you to isolate the signal of the good stories from the din of mediocrity.
Big Shed’s throwing a party, and you’re invited. Their work making audio and multimedia documentaries over the last few years has them thinking about the ways we gather and share stories. They will present two of their ongoing projects – Verite x 2 and the Place + Memory Project – as a way to examine ideas like treating your microphone as a camera, the value of real social networks beyond the virtual kind, and what happens when your audience becomes your collaborator. The evening will be part discussion, part dinner theatre and part dance party. And how can you say “no” to that?
