This performance in movement, text, and sound has been inspired by in-transit stories - field recordings of conversations gathered from public transport rides around the Phoenix valley. Transposed into poetry and song, these not-so-private chats, relay intimate struggles with the system. Created like jazz colliding with formal classical music structures, the piece reflects the creative ways people are improvising across socio/economic boundaries in order to survive and reinvent themselves.
