The Tour

Impossible Questions Tour was created by Corianna Moffatt through a need for conversations around how everyday extraordinary people handle moments of crisis brought on by loss, love, and life. 

The interviews were collected over four months of travel down the East Coast and through the Deep South of the United States.  This website is a curated collection of struggles, happiness, and a whole lot of impossible questions.

Who?

Hi, this is me, Corianna (Moffatt).

 

Where?

All over.  

The first traveling installation of the project started in Boston, MA and covered more than 30 cities and 12 states down the East Coast and through the Deep South, ending in Nashville, TN over 4 months of buses, trains, and carpools. Now, the project exists wherever I am (currently NYC).  I am still interviewing, still editing, and still asking questions.  

Contact me if you would like to be interviewed at impossiblequestionstour@gmail.com

When?

Always.

...but the first traveling part of the trip took place from August, 2013-December, 2013.  All of the interviews are dated and located.   

How?

The interviews take anywhere from one to two hours, but are edited down to a few segments anywhere from 3-5 minutes long.  I audio record the entire interview and take photos.  If there is time and, if the participant is willing, I record video as well.  

But how was this funded?

I used my savings from two years of two jobs and hard work, along with the generous donations from friends, artists, and adventurers to fund my travel....speaking of which...

get your storytelling fix

The Moth.  

I have listened to every single story.  Can you match that? 

Current favorite: Andrew Solomon's A Time Of Hope.  It's Andrew's story of going to war torn Afghanistan in search of art, despite being told that there was no art left in Afghanistan after the Taliban's rule.  Guess what? Art!

This American Life.  

You love Ira, and so do I. 

The This American Life team is half investigative reporting, half story-telling.  They curate big and small stories around a specific theme every week. 

This is a short story by Richard Bausch, read by Mr. Bausch for the Valentine's Day 1998 episode.  It's called Letter To The Lady Of The House.

StoryCorps.

A massive oral history program, recording stories through traveling mobile booths, and stations across the country (maybe even near you!)

This StoryCorps clip is about a father and son who needed each other.  It is aptly entitled, "Why do you care so much for a stranger?'

Here is one about a young woman taking charge of her life.

MILTON. 

Milton is a performance piece created by PearlDamour (Katie Pearl and Lisa D'Amour).  They have been interviewing residents of five small-town "Milton"s located across the USA.  Their project website includes interviews, questions, Milton community engagement, and beautiful photographs of the sky over the various Miltons.
