At the ALLab, performance creation is situated within a scholarly research process. We explore an oral history performance event from the listener’s perspective. Listening at the lab typically happens in the context of small, focussed group dynamics. In that sense, the research-creation projects at the lab aim to develop methods and instruments for enabling these small groups of listeners to report and reflect on their listening processes, together with those who narrate what is being listened to.
