About Living Lines
For this work, Eva and I met at Harvestworks, in New York’s 2018 Spring, to develop the idea of an interactive writing software that allow her performers to “handwrite” words in the stage with their bodies. This words should interact with the performers. For that I create a software called Living Lines, which is opensource and can be dowloaded form Github .

About the Play
(Text by Eva von Schweinitz)
“The Space between the Letters is a new multi-disciplinary, research-based performance project that investigates adult learning, the process of knowledge production, and the socio-political fabric of education in the United States. Integrating recorded interviews with adult students and teachers, interactive video, live-drawing, sound design, and choreography, The Space between the Letters explores the perspective of adult learners and considers the ways in which education can provide tools to become empowered as a citizen. The project was developed as part of The Civilians’ R&D group and is being produced in part at Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center through the Artist-In-Residence Program.”
