Your process is showing: Montparnasse

Earlier this month, the amazing women who created Montparnasse invited me in to one of their rehearsals to observe their process for this series. Just in time for their preview performances starting tonight, I’ve finished a piece that responds to what I observed that day.

I created this piece using transparent layers of vintage sewing patterns, paper ruffles hand-sewn with embroidery thread, wood veneer and ink tracings of an etching of St. Basil monastery c.1757.

It was a joy to be in the room with Andrea Donaldson, Maev Beaty, Erin Shields, Kristy Kennedy and the other folks who are bringing this piece together. I heartily encourage you to make time to see Montparnasse during its run at Theatre Passe Muraille.

Shira Leuchter makes performance stuff and other art stuff. She is currently working with UnSpun Theatre on a new piece that will be performed as part of Harbourfront’s HATCH program this April. She collects all of her shallowest thoughts here.
