A real-time collaboration with the Netherlands, Layer tells the story of three women, each alone and isolated with multiple cultural identities. They encounter multiple layers of themselves in real, virtual, fragmented and augmented realities. Layer explores notions of self-identity, as well as the pleasures and fears we stumble upon within our socially distanced COVID selves.

An IN DEVELOPMENT showing in collaboration with ShELFISH Productions and WERC Collective (Netherlands).

Recorded at The Flying Nun on 14 November 2020 in front of a live audience.
