Gastown
“Hi Carnival band, It's Carmen Papalia here; I'm the artist who wrote you a while back about working with me on a performance of Mobility Device, where I replace my white mobility cane with a marching band that serves as my navigation system . You can find more info about Mobility Device on my website www.carmenpapalia.com ... and there's a short video on youtube from my first performance of the project in 2013 if you search my name and Mobility Device. The reason for my being in touch, I recently was asked to perform Mobility Device as part of the Live Biennial 2019 in October. I'm wondering if you might be interested in working on this with me? There isn't great funding through the biennial but I'm willing to apply for additional funds to cover our fees. I'd love to know what you think. In past performances I've needed 3 or so rehearsals so we can work out different scenarios that we might run into and that's about it; beyond that it's largely improvisational. I'm free and around to chat if you have any questions or would like to know more. My # is 778.788.1414 I look forward to hearing from you! Take care and talk soon, *carm”
