the golden ass
The golden ass, a chamber opera in one act (2017-2020) by Tiffany M. Skidmore is a modern setting of the Cupid/Psyche myth that focuses primarily on the relationship between Psyche and her jealous mother-in-law, Venus, and both their relationships to society. Psyche is a dissociating young girl (in no stars), a reluctant new bride (in shuangxi or “double happiness”), and both the daughter of one man and the wife of another who no longer value their partners as their partners begin to age (grow old). Venus encapsulates her own concerns about aging and the fear of being supplanted by a younger, more “viable” woman in mais mes mains (or “but my hands”). Society watches Psyche’s life unfold—at times silently failing to speak on her behalf, while at other times, amplifying the malignant voices that surround her. Contains "the myth of Psyche and Cupid" for baritone saxophone and two violins, performed with Duo Gelland.

cloud city collage
A visual album of experimental mediamaking using virtual rehearsal processes spanning Europe and the Americas, a choreographic phantasmagoria of images, bodies, sounds, and animals that merges the poetics of dance, animation, and music into bizarre and chimeric dreamscapes. The visual elements use movement, projected dimensionality, video, and image processing to interpret many layers of frontier spaces - the body as a border and a choreography of skin that divides human beings from one another; the barriers and portals of language and written text as doorways to imagination; the borders between human beings and our environment amidst other species that surround us, from tiny fungi to leaves and branches of rhizomal organisms that spread their roots beyond their initial growth to migratory birds that pass over walls and lines of human maps. Premiered at Solid Air Festival, Chaligny, France, April 16, 2021.
