That Which Lies Beneath
(2004) is an evening length work on mortality and Westward migration. The piece uses historic letters and newspaper articles on early San Francisco, excepts from a novel based on those buried in Oakland’s Mountain View Cemetery, and a video shot on location in the cemetery, as well as live dance.
