Thank you to the incredibly talented musicians and actors who have worked tirelessly in front and behind the camera with me on these visual works over the years. Every video has taught me new things, and they hopefully build upon each other, only to eventually come back full circle somehow, before they invariably open up to new vistas of experimentation and possibility. Sometimes you have to stop for a moment, make some form of note taking, before you push on, seeking and hunting for those new arresting images and feelings.
Here is a nifty GoPro video documenting the days leading up to Celestial Son’s live show in Dansehallerne.
I had the pleasure of attending the premiere of the Luisa Fernanda Opera on the Broad Stage at the Santa Monica Theatre on June 5th. This was a great evening and a wonderful production. I was given the opportunity to return to the opera and take some pictures backstage before the final performance. I have posted some selections below from that evening. The opera was directed by Dr. Janelle Destefano and conducted by Dr. James Martin. I want to thank them, and the entire cast and crew for being so generous and allowing me to take these pictures.
