The Banquet of Donny & Ari, scenes from the opera

I was the textile consultant on this book-length epic poem by Naomi Guttman which dropped this month.  It’s an examination of a modern marriage between a textile artist and a composer both of whom are concerned about the state of the natural world and dealing with the pressures of modern life on a Montreal family.  Adding to the depth and universal reach of the poem is that Donny and Ari are 21st century incarnations of Dionysus and Ariadne from Greek mythology.  Naomi found me a couple of years ago by means of my website as I do a lot of fiber art about the environment.  I am so lucky to have been involved in this very classy project!
