Channelling Live is a spoken word performance process where content is mediated by technology, distance and foreign bodies.  Written and conceived by Donna-Michelle St. Bernard, interpreting artists Clare Preuss and Pamela Gilmartin will hear the text for the first time as it is transmitted to them during the performance.

For this performance, the text being channelled is entitled In The Days of My Virginity, a part of the 54ology.  In the Days of My Virginity explores the value of virginity and is being developed with the support of actor Virgilia Griffith.
