BARN ARTS RESIDENCY
In September 2019, the team, along with several performers and instruments, packed into a passenger van and drove all the way to Mount Desert Island, Maine, for a residency at BarnArts. They spent their week workshopping the show in a beautiful Barn-turned-performance space, testing new orchestrations and hearing the script performed by actors. The week concluded with a public showing of work at the Barn, sharing music and stories with Maine locals. Before leaving, they took the opportunity to record a few live performance videos in the Barn, which can be viewed below.
