Cloud Cuckooland - W.I.P.

Presented at Dixon Place, NY 2014

In collaboration with playwright Matthew Freeman, as well as musicians David Kammerer and Damon Ketron, Dixon Place gave us the opportunity to put our crazy ideas on the stage - dance, song, live music, dialogue, video projections, and puppets! This was a rare look into our process, and a very different draft  of what Cloud Cuckooland became in 2016.

Winter in the Woods

Presented at Bushwick Starr, NY 2010

 

In 2010, Djahari approached several superb artists and asked them to dwell on the theme “winter in the woods”.  Each artist came back with unique stories, and through a bicoastal collaboration we began to weave together a fairytale.
