Live performances in which people from different communities use TMBA, for sharing their story from a first person perspective.
The embodied narratives attempt to build empathic concern through building a shared identity. For creating these performances we look for people and communities from all over the world to share a part of their personal life. When we participate in site-specific events, we invite people that want to have an empathic response from that community or from foreign people to get involved with us. We like people to appropriate our technologies and protocols to utilize them in ways that they consider are appropriate for their context.
The technical setup of the performance is the same as the Body Swap, but in this case there are an user and a storyteller. The user embody the body of the storyteller, and has control over the agency of his body.
