Core collaborators writer/composer Noah Drew, director Jamie Nesbitt, musical director Yawen Wang and sound designer Joe Browne were joined by 8 actors & musicians for a week of exploration into the project. During the week, we learned a huge amount about the story, the characters, the theatrical nature of the piece, and how best to integrate the live musical elements with the technological aspects of the sound design. We moved forward by two script drafts, reworked several songs, and had an excellent time collaborating together! On our last day, we presented a work-in-progress showing before a small invited audience, and received very positive, useful feedback. We are on track for our full production this February! Many thanks to Sandeep Bhagwati and the Matralab for hosting us.
