For this production, we based our work on a documentary account of a mother who commits an unforgivable act by accidentally killing her own child. Fueled by unending guilt, she cycles through haunting dreamscapes of death and rebirth. As her reality decomposes into surreal nightmare, she voices her infinite despair amidst vivid visual and sound environments. We explored trauma, loss, guilt, grief and ultimately community healing through a richly visual and aural landscape through a multidisciplinary music theatre work that is part theatre, dance, opera, chamber and electronic music. Because of timing, I was challenged to design a set for an production that was not yet written. This pushed me into exploring the malleable material of plastic sheeting to create the physical manifestation of the mother’s emotional landscapes.
