In this session we will discuss a specific site-specific audio play to see how it works. To prepare for this session, listen to Tree Confessions ( a 35-min audio play that you listen to while sitting under a tree) using the link below. Then show up for a post-show discussion which will include Q&A, best practices, and a few tips!

In a landmark study, a scientist learned everything about how trees communicate. — Or did she? One tree tells the story of what really happened. Presenting the world’s first play told entirely from the point of view of a tree. To experience this site-specific audio play, find a tree near you, sit under it, press play, and listen to the tree’s confessions. This piece is self-scheduled: you can listen to it at any time.
