"See Also" - Designer, Puppeteer, Puppet and Prop Fabricator, Co-Producer
"See Also" was a devised, site-specific, immersive experience that was run as a part of the "In the Stacks" series held at the George Peabody Library, in Baltimore, in Februrary of 2020. Following threads (both figurative and literal) around the Peabody Library in a choose-your-own-adventure style, participants encountered visual art, soundscapes, and performers portraying character composites based on historical women and non-binary individuals from the collections of the Johns Hopkins Sheridan Libraries and University Museums. The performance culminated in the world premiere of a work by contemporary female composer Briay Conditt.
This highly collaborative work was developed with a large ensemble cast and a Core Creative Team of ten members, of which I was a part. I also participated as a puppet and prop fabricator, puppeteer and designer. "See Also" was produced by Submersive Productions, where I serve as Co-Artistic Director.
