On the Other Side of the River

Presented at HERE Arts, NYC
Directed by Shannon Sindelar

Written by Peretz Hirschbein

Sound Design and Original Music by Erik T. Lawson

"A provincial girl raised in a small river town by her blind, devout grandfather, Mir'l is on the cusp of womanhood, ready to declare her independence. But when her grandfather dies and she finds herself alone, she doesn't know which way to turn, until she meets a luminous, mysterious stranger who lives On the Other Side of the River." -Official Press Release 

The sound design and original music explores the relationship between divided ideas. The soundscore, which underscores the entire production, is composed from the sound of fragmented, stylized, and bifurcated ice, glass, and prepared piano textures.
