Project: So Many Feelings An embodied call-and-response with live singing and recorded video, So Many Feelings (2014–) fuses personal and popular narratives to create an emotional and humourous interplay between artist, audience, and screen. The ongoing project was first presented for Performatorium 2014: Festival of Queer Performance, and its latest iteration, for PushOFF: Speculative Futures, interweaves footage spanning 7 years. Durey adapts principal scenes for online presentation and creates new chapters that layer heartfelt and comic performances with field recordings, foley, and song Featuring: Created by Lucien Durey.
