The Typewriting Revolution

 This piece celebrates the design revolution and antiquated nature of the typewriter. In the dawn of a new technological era, and as Brother manufactures its last typewriter in England (2012), it was my intention to utilise the machine that was once regarded as a danger to the oral tradition of communication as the concept for an interactive performance.


The typewriters influence in the performance allowed audience members to ‘play’ on the very machines that created the first jobs for women, although all members of the audience began their ‘career’ in the show as a typist-clerk.


The show also made social comments on attitudes towards work, bureaucracy, documentation and identity.
