Visual data/comprehension

Another illustration. This one shows how my use of e-ma gives rise to three kinds of data/understanding, which move from a surface understanding (readerly) through a more comprehensive understanding based on contextual knowledge of the painted e-ma, through to semi-fictional narrative (writerly) data. Workshops can be 'tweaked' towards eliciting the type of data the researcher is seeking to explore.

A Note From Alice Sheppard After the First Week of her Residency

It’s Friday morning.  And I am both refreshed and drained.  Refreshed because I slept really well last night.  Drained because I am involved in a process in which people have committed their everything.  Such total dedication and openness is utterly compelling: I’m drawn in.  I want to honour their commitment to the best of my abilities.  So, yes.  I, too, am committing everything I have and know to the process.  The learnings flow back richly, complexly, terrifyingly, and…

A Dancer's Perspective on the Alice Sheppard Intensive - Kaylee's Story

When I first learned that Alice Sheppard was going to come to Edmonton and work with CRIPSiE, I was instantly excited. When I first learned that I was going to be lucky enough to be in the piece, I was ecstatic, and couldn’t wait to see where the process would go. And when, three weeks before rehearsals started, I injured my lower back (ending up in the hospital) I was worried. Would I be able to keep up? Could I do everything I needed to? Was my back ready to dance again? Thankfully,…

A note from Alice Sheppard on our first day of her ABR residency

Yesterday was the first day of our creation intensive at CRIPSiE. I’m sort of stunned.

Yesterday was the first day of our creation intensive at CRIPSiE, and it’s clear that we are on a journey to, well, I don’t know where. And I am happy for that to be the case.

I’m Alice, and I am here for two weeks to create a piece with CRIPSiE. I’ve been waiting for this moment for a while. When I read about CRIPSiE on the web, I was immediately drawn to their stated commitment to crip and…
