Amazing visual opportunities unfold during the development of performing arts productions. They can be more interesting than opening night. It's a bit like street photography done backstage.

The rehearsal process is where a performance's creativity happens and is where characters, timing, movement and relationships are born.

This project is based on the work of actors, singers, dancers, directors, choreographers, technicians, & musicians. These are not documentaries, instead they are their own work using the participants' creative energy to make evocative images. Think of it as the archeology of theater performances.

I am very grateful for the access to these artists and their patience with my presence.
