I recently had the amazing opportunity to collaborate on original short pieces of theatre and film in Florence, Italy as a part of the Building Bridges program. The program was a collaboration between students from New York, Zurich, Stockholm and Copenhagen. We started with a weeklong collaboration in New York during the summer of 2012. In January 2013 we got back together in Zurich, and finally the program culminated with a two week long intensive in Florence. Collaborating on new work is something that I've grown to love, and to be able to do so with artists coming from around the world was an incredible experience.
