A powerhouse of wit and hard-learned wisdom as performed by an actor in a rabbit suit.” –Realtime Australia

“Clark and I proves that some human communication is still beyond the bounds of copyright – even other people’s memories.”Toronto’s Eye Weekly

In the summer of 2005, James Long salvaged seven photo albums and travel journals from an alley near his East Vancouver home. The collection, complete with detailed captions and letters, documents a family’s history between 1950 and 1987, and includes everything from birth notices to a full eulogy for the archivist’s Toy Pomeranian, Mandy. Two years later, a team of collaborators traveled in search of the origins of these books, and ran into some serious questions surrounding the legality and morality of working with found materials.

Clark and I uses fact, fiction, video, interviews, a rabbit suit and anything else required to make sense of these found materials and the many lives interrupted along the way.

Winner of the Innovation Award (sponsored by the Vancouver Sun) at the 26th annual Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards.
