Although the lockdown measures brought challenges but helped me to create a different and effective way to work with the cast remotely. I worked with the production manager and with the cast members remotely on daily Zoom calls with musicians and singers; and initially with the dancers to share my thoughts, plans, and ideas on my vision of the dance piece and what element I am looking for from each artist to play their part in the project. Ultimately, it was a challenging process but a blessing to have the support to be able to create and finalise the dance piece in these uncertain times.”
