Production DetailsEden. The Joy of Being.
Eden was created in 2021 for the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival. It is a six-person ensemble work. "We impact and inhabit the reality we live in and our shared experience as humans. With trust, change, and belief in the common good, can we create a metaphorical Eden on this planet that is safe for us, yet in-balance with nature?" The Joy of Being with Another Person was created in 2019 as a duet for The War Memorial. The piece is about the joy, reflection, and agony of being in a relationship with another person. The shared physical language of the duet grows throughout the duration of the piece, culminating in a touching and intertwined duet to close the work.Concept o4
