Palm Springs Swimming Pool = La Scala + Jacques Cousteau (July 14, 2007)

Performance, work-in-progress, experimental opera collaboration with Juliana Snapper.

A collaborative, situational performance in a Palm Springs pool where the audience becomes the chorus while learning to perceive the differences in sound both above and below water. There was a solo performed by Juliana at the bottom of the pool via a breathing tube which acts as a speaker as well. This work examines the body's relationship to water, and how it limits the body and full immersion both figuratively and metaphorically.
