PMA Podcast: Interview with "The Loneliness Project" collaborative team

April 10, 2018

In episode 14 of the PMA Podcast, The Loneliness Project (April 19–21) collaborative team members Caitlin Kane, Reed Motz, and Kelli Simpkins speak about bringing their documentary play, crafted in a collaboration between Chicago LGBTQIA+ artists and community members, to Ithaca.

The play uses verbatim testimony to document the rich history of Chicago’s LGBTQIA+ activist communities and to make sense of their fracturing over the past 20 years.

A tale of fierce activism, profound loneliness, and remarkable resilience, The Loneliness Project employs the documentary method as not only a mode of artistic creation and preservation but also as a mode of collaborative problem-solving.
