Week two (Mskomini Giizis Residency)
As we moved into week two of our Mskomini Giizis Residency with Native Earth Performing Arts we were very excited to begin working with our director, Moynan King, and our designers Jay Havens (sets), Samay Arcentales Cajas (projections) and Kinoo Arcentales (costumes), as well as our stage manager, Heather Kilner!
As a team we’re having a great time teasing out the dramatic and comedic elements of this opera, as well as envisioning how it could be presented in a full production. We are thankful for everyone’s contributions as they fearlessly explore the work and experiment with us.
Week three will start to incorporate the instruments, as well as the design elements which, until now, have been in the planning and conceptualizing stages!
