I had the privilege to be a part of this performance as a set designer, which in particular became a reflection on the power of the performer to transfigurate the most simple materials and symbols through their scale, their weight and movement. Being in such a powerful landscape, locating and moving these materials around, against strong winds and a dry grass floor on a sunset hour, the stage was already the performance, we just needed to fit in as humbly as we could.
