Together with writer Bob Cryer, I am involved in the development of an opera, which by its subject matter requires it to be presented internationally. Our “hero”, Bonnie Prince Charlie, is fascinating for his national identity: Italian-born grandson of the King of both Scotland and England, he illustrates how similar 18th Century and 21st Century U.S./U.K. politics are, especially in these unsettling Brexit times and with a Trumpocalypse looming. With King of America we aim to draw connections between the past and now in order to reflect on the contemporary political situation we find ourselves in.

I am participating in nu: nord, an artistic cooperation and community-building project between emerging new-music creators from Canada, Scandinavia and the UK.

In February 2013 I was given a wonderful working space--overlooking the Baltic--in which to work on a big project about a temple in Hampi, (a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in south India). In Visby, I was able to put down the foundations of this large-scale work which will incorporate dancers and musicians from both the U.K. and India, culminating in a performance in Hampi. Now, my task is to find funding, which will allow for everyone to be able to experience the sonic world of the place.
