Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

I will expand my artistry by composing and staging a large scale interdisciplinary piece in collaboration with a choreographer and projection designer. The artistic efficacy of `Bluets` will come from verbal and written feedback gathered at pre-performance rehearsals attended by trusted advisors and a post-performance audience discussion and survey.
