Sisters of the Wind
‘Sisters of the Wind’ is the fruit of artistic research on witches, ecofeminism, and science-fiction carried out between 2018 and 2021 by Juliette Lizotte aka jujulove. It is a story that weaves through seven videos and can be experienced in different ways: an interactive audiovisual performance, an online world-building workshop and role play session, and this publication!
The publication concludes the three world-building workshops and role play sessions part of the project which took place online in February 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, though they were originally intended to unfold in the form of live action role play (larp). This new constraint led us to perform the worldbuilding and role play exercises in an etherpad, an open source digital tool for co-writing text in real-time. The outcome of these sessions was archived and used as material for the publication.
This “choose-your-own adventure” story consists of three parallel worlds that were co-created during three sessions, each lasting three hours. The core of the story was similar, but the direction the sessions took were quite unique. As the story unfolds, you are asked to make decisions to travel from one world to another: creating your own version of the story by following your instinct or challenging your impulses!
