2020-21 was a strange year in which theatre shut down completely in NYC. Projects completely at that time were intimate & remote, in comparison to large scale operas I'm using to designing, and I took a year to focus on mounting an art exhibition and performance in collaboration with the painter Renee Berthelette. Our work together can be viewed here.
