‘The Wheel of Ritual’ residency at Gornia Lipnitsa, Bulgaria, July 7 to 24, 2019. ‘Stick’ was in development throughout the residency, culminating in a performance, ‘Stick’, in the Pavilion of the School, against a backdrop constructed using local fruits and vegetables, followed by the showing of a film, ‘Stick’, in the Old Schoolhouse. Thanks to fellow resident Yuan Lin, for her singing during the performance, and to host Darina Palova and her family for their generous hospitality.
