Senatore’s work has been exhibited widely throughout Italy, Spain, London, Berlin and New York and now, the world-renowned artist is looking for unique ideas for her radio drama right here in Richmond.
The artist is famous for her tendency to involve entire communities and even cities to create art wherever she goes. She is also popular for her ability to work through different mediums of art for the sake of her storytelling. Her mission in Richmond is to tell stories that only true Richmonders can provide. — stories that highlight the past, present, and future of this River City.
Radio dramas, once commonly broadcast, use highly theatrical dialogue and music to tell stories about extraordinary, and ordinary, people and places. America’s most famous radio drama broadcast was Orson Welles’ War of the Worlds, which actually convinced hundreds of listeners that a real invasion from Mars had taken place.
Senatore is here to bring that drama and that powerful passion back.Those with family legends and critical perspectives or anyone who has a great tale to tell are invited to share their stories.
Using local submissions to create the outline for Richmond: Symphony of A City, Senatore will work with a cross-section of Richmonders to develop the radio drama in 2018, which will be performed as part of Declaration, ICA’s inaugural exhibition which will run April 21 – September 9.
All are welcome to submit, and story ideas must be submitted to [email protected] by Dec. 10, with a maximum word limit of 500 words.
