All My Little Words: a performance lecture on art and failure with personal examples

Are you an artist? Or a person who's made things? Or a human who has failed at something?

Have you ever thought "I'm afraid of being an artist who doesn't make art"?

ALL MY LITTLE WORDS looks at what it means to fail at art. Or what it's like to be afraid of failing at art. Which is to say, what it means to be an artist - though that depends upon the definition of "artist" that you use.

Using their long-time collaborator's unfinished graduate playwriting thesis as a jumping off point, Ashley Hollingshead explores the idea of artistic failure, practice, and success. All the while examining their changing relationship with their own artistic practice in this interactive performance/lecture/essay.
