First Glue / Stage Business (FG / SB) is the intersection of a film, a newspaper and a live performance on stage. The mixed-media piece was conceived in collaboration with Jessica Foley and Steven Randall within five weeks of creative research at the Cow House Studios residency program under the aegis of the Centre for Dying on Stage.
