Hi friends! We’re only a month in, and 2015 is shaping up to be an exciting year!
After traveling to Montana to see family for the holidays, I hit the ground running with LeeSaar The Company, lighting a remount of September’s Close Up at the Theatre at the 14th St. Y, and an excerpt of a new piece at APAP’s City Center venue. This new piece, tentatively titled Sonata, will debut in full at Celebrate Brooklyn this summer in Prospect Park.
Also in the works: Butoh Medea, which won four awards at the United Solo Festival in November, is likely to run at the Edinburgh Festival this August, and is even a candidate to perform at United Solo Europe, in Warsaw, Poland. I’m so happy to be associated with this group of artists, and proud to have Yokko as the hub of our creative wheel.
In the immediate future, I’m putting the finishing touches on Molière’s Amphitryon at NYU Gallatin, and will be reassuming my role as Associate Lighting Designer (under Lucrecia Briceno) on The Civilians’ The End and the Beginning (formerly titled Be The Death Of Me). Originally produced at the Irondale Center in Brooklyn in 2013, audience members will now get to experience death from new perspectives in the shadow of the ancient Temple of Dendur at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
And finally, I’m excited to announce I’ll be making a much anticipated foray into Opera, with Rossini’s La Cenerentola at Shreveport Opera this April!
