What interested and motivated you to design the set for the road opera Alexandra? Tell us about your process and what inspires you?
I’ve known about Alexandra David-Néel since childhood. I met Pauline Vaillancourt in 2002, during a residency at the Studio du Québec à New York. Pauline’s tenacity and audacity in exploring theatrical and musical dimensions is something I admire. The thought of working on articulating a scenic space also pleased me because my installations are conceived as pathways that offer a visual and sensory experience which also encourages the viewer to move through the space.
