Lisbon Architecture Triennale

Writer-in-Residence at Palácio Pombal in Lisbon.

Lisbon Architecture Triennale

Working on real-time reportage of the abandoned Palácio Pombal in Lisbon, I engage in field-writings examining the physical vulnerability of the rooms, giving material voice, restoring purpose to the dreamer, to form a prolegomenon of imagined histories. Working with students from a local theatre school, my texts are told on a daily basis in the Oratory: one storyteller speaking intimately to one listener.

My residency is part of The Real and Other Fictions, curated by Mariana Pestana.
