An original vignette-based work in collaboration with choreographer Brigette Dunn-Korpela (LA) and visual artist Dasha Sur (Russia). The symbiotic development of vocal composition, choreography and sculpture uses security alarms and the ancient Greek Sirens as points of departure to embody the act of trespassing, ownership of space, and the physical and disembodied experiences of the alarm state.
Selected vignettes presented by: REDCAT Studio, LA (2017); L.A.N.D. & WILD ART GROUP at Blue Roof Studios, LA (2018)
Development took place in residency at The Watermill Center with the support of New Music USA.
TOKYO is a full-length, multi-media theater work mining the sound-image repertoire of Tennessee Williams’ Noh-inspired works The Day on Which a Man Dies and In the Bar of a Tokyo Hotel. Emerging from a re-reading of the works as two chapters of a single night in the characters’ lives, the project unites these separate efforts of the author to reveal the intense personal struggle of the artist-innovator amidst the juxtaposition of East-West philosophy and neurosis around art, love and death.
