For the stage
Commissioned by the National Gallery of Art, Proteus, referencing the Greek god of the ocean, imagines a world submerged in water. Set to a re-envisioning of Vivaldi’s Double Concerto in F Major, Proteus juxtaposes lush strokes with quick precision and features costumes from plastic bags, at times engulfing the dancers, which serves as a reflection on the impact of plastic pollution on the ocean.
