After a long hiatus, we will continue devising works that inspire audiences and challenge the status quo. CGDT is currently working on multiple projects including a year-long collaborative project with pianist, Joshua White. CGDT is also working with Colburn School faculty members, Tamsin Carlson and Jordan Nelson, on a project about the burden of beauty.
We are looking forward to sharing this work with you soon!
