So thrilled to see this posting by the Merola Opera about the US premiere of Backwards from Winter. Both Jennifer and Konstantin Koukias (Amsterdam based director working on Australian and Asian premieres of the work) will use an immersive video environment for the work as Juanita and I had imagined. But how different it will be in the creative hands of these two outstanding directors. So looking forward to working with them!
Cool new sounds used in my monodrama Backwards from Winter.
Douglas and Konstantin had a tremendous meeting today in Amsterdam discussing production details and performance logistics for the Asian/Australian performances of Backwards from Winter. As our mutual visions for this work align, it becomes ever clearer that this is going to be a thrilling collaboration!
Last week composer DOUGLAS KNEHANS sat down for a filmed interview about his life and work for China Television. The film will be available soon in an extended, forty minute version available in full on YouTube, or in a twenty minute version available to viewers of CCTV America.
