From InWorld

Here are a couple of screen shots from InWorld - my recent on woman theatre performance piece about a recluse gamer searching the metaverse for her avatar lover, missing in real life wartime. Here Lucy Darling enters the Vortex Pinnacle temple in World of Warcraft.Lucy achieves Level 85!
Here is a piece of media adapted from InWorld for the web project Exile Writing - an ongoing project between an amazing collective of women from around the world that started as a workshop at ISEA. This video sets up the love story.

This is a shot from Lucy's final speech where she says: "To know someone virtually is to know them in a perfect way. You see what they want you to see, and so you see them. You get to know who they are inside, even if you never meet in real life. The only problem is - if someone doesn't sign in again - or if they can't sign in - you may never see them again. There is nothing you can do. You will never know what happened to them."
Lucy enters her virtual garden to build another tree.
This show was made possible thanks to support form the Canada Council for the Arts, Media Arts Section, The Black Bag Media Collective and the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council. Produced by Roles 4 Women Theatre Company and Liz Solo.
