Lost Together invites you to share a story about something you’ve lost. Throughout the conversation, Shira and Michaela will work together to re-imagine and recreate that lost thing for you. What will happen when we collaborate to make something new out of loss? The objects we create will become part of an ever-evolving exhibition, reminding us that loss doesn’t have to be a solitary reckoning.
Conceived by Shira Leuchter.
Created and Performed by Shira Leuchter and Michaela Washburn.
The Speedy has been taught at the University of Toronto as a part of the English Department’s course Literature for Our Time, and in the drama department at the University of Windsor.
Professor Denise Cruz recently published an article on The Speedy titled Archival Performances: Collaborative Theater and Approaches to Indigenous History in American Literary History. You can read the abstract here.
