Friendships come from unexpected places.
I first heard Jesse play when I was hanging out at a ballet company, trying to get a job. His haunting yet soothing compositions created entire landscapes in my imagination and continue to do so with each listen. It has been an absolute honor to get to know this quiet man who can conjure powerful atmospheres once onstage, and I look forward to future collaborations.
"Mother Nature's Need" was written for the same ballet company where Jesse and I met. It's called Wonderbound and I have now worked there for two seasons. The production, "Dust," follows the lives of Colorado settlers through an often overlooked chapter in our state's history – the Dust Bowl. The show features both company members from Wonderbound and actors from Curious Theatre Company. It runs April 15-30 in Denver, CO and promises to be one hell of an experience.
