Spark is a play about three sisters living in the US caught in the mess of a recent war’s aftermath. It is about what happens when soldiers come home, when women of little economic means must find a way to make do and carry on, and the strength, ultimately, of family. A contemporary US story of faith, love, war, trauma, and a bit of healing.

In the Time of The Butterflies

In the Time of Butterflies…

Based on Julia Álvarez’s popular novel, In The Time of the Butterflies, is a fictionalized account of the story of the courageous Mirabal sisters. With immersive video and animation dispersed across the stage, the piece paints a visual dreamscape of the interior lives of the sisters, the beauty of the natural world, and the music of the time.

“…Few artists can claim to have crossed so many boundaries at birth: Cuba, Argentina, Spain, and Croatia. Few have created so many bodies of work in so many disciplines: playwriting, songwriting, essay writing, teaching, translation, reviewing, editing, and mentoring.”
