Directed by Maree ReMalia, this collaborative performance work showcases vocabulary that was generated and crafted by ReMalia, the cast, and understudies.

Special thank you PPU Department of Dance for the opportunity to create this new work, COPA Production team for their creativity and support throughout the process, Jil Stifel for her outside eye, and to the amazing cast and understudies for their artistry and generosity.
The work includes projection by Gigi Gatewood and David Bernabo and set pieces by visual artist, Natalia Gomez. The set design in this work is drawn from the project, A Letter Compiled From All Letters, an evening-length performance work conceived of by Maree ReMalia, Gigi Gatewood, and Lillian Cho, which premiered at New Hazlett Theater June 13-15, 2019.
