Can I get a Witness!
Thanks to National Performance Network Forth Funding
The answer is YES!
In developing River See I realized that I need a friend/a long time collaborator in the room to help me make connections between my artistic foundation, the new form I am working in, and the new thing that I am doing that I can’t yet name. I know that it is critical that I dive into all that I am Inspired by and Am…to create my own cosmology for making this work. For fully realizing the text, the orchestration of the piece and how I talk about the project.
So I gathered my Witnesses. They will be in the room/sometimes as performers. Sometimes as a collective. Sometimes individually. Always/bringing their brilliance and Light/in helping me Lift River See.
