Banff Arts Centre

This is the second full day I have been at the Banff Arts Centre as part of the 2011 Sundance Institute Theatre Lab. Already, I have seen three deer: one from our rehearsal room window and the other two walking along the snowy paths. I have definitely been inspired to think differently about Stuck Elevator.

Here's the view from my work area. A long ways from a stuck elevator in the Bronx, I find creativity and generosity with amazing collaborators, fellow theater artists and the support staff. The environment encourages me to expand the story and music in playful and unexpected ways.

Dedicated to intercultural collaboration, Byron Au Yong composes songs of dislocation, music for a changing world. He teaches in Performing Arts & Social Justice at the University of San Francisco.
