stor(y)age is an interactive audio-performance that invites the audience into a world of remembrance to self-examine their material possessions. Wearing headphones and carrying an FM transmitter, the audience takes a guided trip up to an attic accompanied by a montage of others' self reflections. Along the way, they are asked to reflect on what they keep, where they keep it, and most importantly, why. Once in the attic, the audience meets a live performer, a collector of many things, who shares with them a list of her own hidden and stored-away gems. Finally, the audience is probed for personal responses which are fed back into the same FM transmission that they are listening to.
An experience of being "alone, together", stor(y)age ends on a quiet and nostalgic tone and leaves each participant reflecting on a vivid image of the one thing they just can't get rid of.
stor(y)age is approximately 20 minutes in length and occurs over the FM band radio for an audience of 20. Each audience member is provided with a pair of headphones and an FM receiver.
