Ariel Francoeur's piece, Connections, in the Worth Fighting For Pop Up Museum

December 4, 2014

As a director my work is pretty tightly controlled, and before working on my Worth Fighting For piece I had never written or devised anything.  Seeing this and all the performances occurring in the midst of unsuspecting audience members, I understood the importance of experimenting with new forms.  We had collectedly created something that changed the day of everyone in the library, and even if they only noticed art happening peripherally, it was enough of a change from everyday life to make a difference.
