(on) Mayflower 400

“Sarah will be working with me on the ground-breaking Mayflower 400 performance project in 2020 as Composer and Musial Director.  The Mayflower performance project is a transatlantic collaboration between the Wampanoag community and communities in Plymouth, UK. An important, delicate piece of political theatre as part of the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower’s journey. The political importance of this project in very tense times is an exciting and rare opportunity and responsibility, which promises to support and demand artistic work of the highest order.”
