Push Play is a workshop based on ongoing research and experimentation between Liza Zapol and Nicki Pombier Berger. We explore the embodied experience of interviewing as a way of examining how we remember, how we ask narrators to engage in memory, and what is, or is not, included in the archive. We draw on creativity and sense of play as a way of pushing through limits in the practice of oral history.
Push Play is a collaboration between Liza Zapol and Nicki Pombier Berger. It is a series of workshops, a friendship, and an ongoing performance.
