Where Is the Mind When The Body Is Here?
Inspired by Calderón de la Barca's Life Is a Dream, this piece is the first of my "Plays for No Actors". Combining visual art, sculpture, text, and originally composed music, it explores the themes of isolation and confinement. Meant for a single audience member. First presented at VoxFest 2019 at Dartmouth College.
