I am sound designing a workshop for Rising Circle Theatre Collective!
After meeting Yolande Bavan, a globe-trotting, barrier-breaking jazz singer from Sri Lanka, Dinu decides to write a play about Yolande's whirlwind life. In an attempt to cement a legacy, the two women, a generation apart, reckon with unexpected truths. As in any Sri Lankan story, there is tea, love cake, and, of course, there is music.
With: Yolande Bavan, Kathleen Choe, Jeffrey Omura, Kate Rigg, and Pallavi Sastry.
