Theater & Dance


Plague

Plague is a new, interdisciplinary work that combines music, theater, and devised movement. Aesthetically drawing from the Black Plague of Medieval Europe, Plague is an abstract discussion of death and its effect on those around it. Each of the scenes embodies a different aspect of how people deal with death: fragility, grief, inevitability, fear, and futility.

This workshopped iteration of the project was the culmination of Drew’s third year in residence at CalArts. The piece utilizes her signature extended piano technique and textural writing as well as featuring her love of floating melodies and large harmonic textures.
