“Performing on the Citadel LIVE platform was like no other experience that I have had as a performer. Imagine dancing through the space while three cameras move through the space with you. It was really a quartet performance for 45 minutes. I will always remember the feeling of adrenaline rushing through my body while doing the “high priest section” with the steady cam right in front of me. I am so proud to have had the opportunity to have shown my first creation on this platform and am thrilled to be a part of The Citadel’s Creative Incubator Project. The support from the theatre’s technical team, administrative staff, and artistic director are like no other in the city. They have provided me with all-encompassing support before the show, during the live stream, and now after the show. This is truly a unique place for creation and performance.”
