Our Fathers’ Daughters

evening-length performance art piece with music for solo cello

Composed: 1998

Our Fathers’ Daughters is a collaborative work with elements of dance, theatre and music; it was commissioned by the Northampton Moving Writing Group, directed by Carl Forsman and choreographed by Andrea Olsen. Members of the Northampton Moving Writing Group used portions of their own writing to create this piece, which they also performed; the music I wrote for solo cello came out of my experience of their collective creative process.

It was premiered January 30 and 31, 1998 in the Thornes’ Third Floor Gallery in Northampton, MA, with Debra Sherr, cello.
